Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat will be signing copies of his new book, ARE WE THERE YET? Autographed copies will be available on Monday, April 18.
“Are we there yet?” Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride–and after reading this astonishingly inventive new book (that even turns upside down for several pages!), 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 book, 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.
Praise for ARE WE THERE YET?:
“…in Caldecott medalist Santat’s hands, the familiar trip becomes an unforgettable romp through time and space.”
~Kirkus Reviews, starred review
” It’s a remarkable feat-a turbocharged adventure that’s also a meditation on the relative nature of time.”
~Publishers Weekly, starred review
