Very clever! I loved the illustrations and the detail that went into them.

Every parent and grandparent must have faced this question when taking their little one on a trip. Usually it starts right out of the driveway even on a thousand KM trip! Now the author/illustrator of this great book shows how with a little or a lot of imagination we can keep answering the question till we get to Grandma's house or wherever we may be going. A very well written, well illustrated book. Your child will love being read to and eventually reading it right side up or upside down!

As a family car trip begins to "feel like an eternity," the boy in the backseat gets bored. Really bored. SO BORED that time begins to spiral backwards around him (as do the words on the page, forcing readers to turn the book around). Though his parents are surprised to find themselves suddenly racing a steam locomotive, jousting with knights, or cruising past the brand-new Sphinx, the boy remains blasé -- at least until the Tyrannosaurus charges! Readers of all ages will love road-tripping through this "turbocharged adventure" (Publishers Weekly) by Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat.
