The boredom of a long car journey turns into a massive adventure through time and space in this outstanding picture book. A boy is travelling with his parents to see his grandma and the journey seems to be taking forever, hours feel like days. Suddenly – is he dreaming? – we’re travelling back through time, ages whizzing past the window, right back to the age of the dinosaurs. You need to turn the book upside down at this point, and turn the pages from right to left. Turn the book right way round again and we zoom into the future, arriving decades too late for grandma’s party. Clever, inventive and totally original, this is both a hugely enjoyable romp and a meditation on the nature of time. ~ Andrea Reece
The car trip to Grandma's house is taking forever.
Are We There Yet? explores the amazing possibilities of imagination on a long, boring car journey, as time slows down so much that it starts going backwards. Featuring dinosaurs, Ancient Egyptians, knights and pirates, this is one amazing journey through the imagination.
With stand-out illustrations that span millennia by the Caldecott-winning author of The Adventures of Beekle.
