We all know these words either as grandparent, parent or child – spoken in frustration or boredom or both on a long road trip. This story has a boy and his parents on the way to grandma’s birthday and it seems like it’s taking forever. Along the way something happens. Is time dragging by or is it racing backwards?
Cowboys, pirates, knights, camels and… dinosaurs? And then just as quickly as their trip back in time, they are suddenly in the future. 2059. Are they late for grandma’s birthday?
Part picture book, part graphic novel, part past, part future – Are we there yet has tipped the picture book concept on its head. Fantastic!
