Synopsis

Hit the Road, Jack by Robert Burleigh

A delightful picture book inspired by Jack Kerouac's On The Road. In this rendition, a scat singing, be bopping jack rabbit travels across the United States and marvels at all the wonders that the country reveals, from hopping on the subway in Brooklyn to playing the jukebox in Chicago to Mount Rushmore to Golden Gate in San Francisco. Written with the rhythm of a beat poem and the spirit of Kerouac, it's an exuberant story of experiencing all the world has to offer with wide eyed awe. There is also a brief author's note in back that simply explains the connection to Kerouac.
