That great American tradition, the family car trip, gets its due in this picture book packed with verse as bouncy as a rumble seat on Route 66. Families will chuckle over the familiar bugaboos of long-distance driving-punctuated, of course, by that universal backseat refrain. Sis and little brother spar, Mom and Dad belt out golden oldies, pup can't keep his fleas to himself . . . and how did that underwear get out the window, anyway? It's enough to give the most patient passenger ants in the pants!
With rhymes that roll right along and funny, exuberant illustrations, this read-aloud is a perfect addition to any summer-vacation book bag.
Illustrated by Shannon McNeill.
