Description-

  • Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat takes listeners on the road trip of a lifetime!

    "Are we there yet?" Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride—and after listening to this astonishingly inventive new audiobook, you'll never look at being bored the same way again.

    Let's face it: everyone knows that car rides can be boring. And when things get boring, time slows down. In this audiobook, a boy feels time slowing down so much that it starts going backward—into the time of pirates! Of princesses! Of dinosaurs! The boy was just trying to get to his grandmother's birthday party, but instead he's traveling through Ancient Egypt and rubbing shoulders with Ben Franklin. When time flies, who knows where—or when—he'll end up.

    Starred review from January 11, 2016
    Two parents and their son set out on a marathon car trip, headed to Grandma’s house for her birthday. “This is taking forever,” the boy groans. Suddenly—is he dreaming?—a steam locomotive appears beside their car, chased by a cowboy on horseback. Following the text around sequential panels, readers end up flipping the book upside down and turning the pages back to front as the family travels into the past. Outside, pirates fight, knights joust, dinosaurs loom. Then, just as suddenly, text and pictures right themselves and the family zooms into the future, arriving at Grandma’s house to find a space-age building in its place: “Today is October 24, 2059,” a huge screen announces. The conclusion is as neat as the bow on Grandma’s birthday gift (a clock). “Be patient,” writes Caldecott Medalist Santat (The Adventures of Beekle), dedicating the book to his son. “We have all the time in the world.” His own patience is what harnesses the energy of his riotous story and gives it a laser focus. It’s a remarkable feat—a turbocharged adventure that’s also a meditation on the relative nature of time. Ages 3–6. Agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House.

  • AudioFile Magazine The car trip to Grandma's always feels exciting until after the first hour, begins Robert Petkoff in the informative voice of a travel guide. Questioning and mystery enter his tone as he wonders what happens after that hour, "when your brain is bored." Then Petkoff departs from his neutral role to become the squeaky-voiced, complaining back-seat child who issues the classic titular question. On the accompanying CD, Santat's comic illustrations rotate in a spiral to mark changes in the story and the child's emotions. Petkoff animates the tale with a dinosaur roar, alien chatter, and, of course, the continual whine of the bored but imaginative passenger. Illustrations and narration work together well to emphasize the humor. S.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
