The Lovereading4Kids comment

The title of this book will bring shudders to anyone who has ever undertaken a long journey with children, the book itself could be a godsend! 96 busy, colourful pages are packed with puzzles, games and activities of all sorts. The opening section will put readers properly in the holiday spirit with games and challenges to get them thinking about packing and holiday destinations. After that come pages of activities to pass the time while en route, while it’s raining, or even while your parents enjoy a lie in. The activities are very varied and will give the brain a good work-out too over those long lazy summer days. Well worth adding to the suitcase. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

Gill Harvey

Gill grew up in Warwickshire until the age of seven, when her family moved to a derelict railway station in mid-Wales. By the age of eighteen her only aim in life was to escape the Welsh hills, so off she went to explore. After an enlightening gap year, she ducked out of a law degree and studied French and Philosophy at University College, Oxford. Then she tried mental health work, environmental work, life in a VW van in the Outer Hebrides, busking, turning pigsties into craft workshops and working on an antiques stall... all fun, but none of them quite right.

Gill went freelance in 2000. It has involved all sorts of writing — commissioned fiction, non-fiction, film reviews and even a software manual. Then a year in Egypt resulted in both Orphan of the Sun, set in ancient Egypt, and Love in Luxor, a modern teenage love story (Piccadilly, 2005). Further travel led to journalism, and she now writes travel features, too.

Gill lives in London but is always itching to spend more time in Africa, her favourite continent.
