Road Trip by Danny Parker

Fri 10 August 2018

Every parent has heard that plaintive cry from the backseat: Are we there yet....?! When you're on a road trip, an hour can feel like forever - especially when you're a child! 

Danny Parker's book Road Trip is a creative take on time and all the fun things you can fit into an hour. It's also a cheeky story about a child's exasperation with their Dad's meandering road trips, with fun illustrations by Nathaniel Eckstrom.

To read along with the pictures, buy your own copy of the book at all good bookstores or online at BooktopiaRoad Trip is published by Little Hare Books, an imprint of Hardie Grant Egmont.

Read by Donné Restom.
