Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat takes listeners on the road trip of a lifetime.

“Are we there yet?” Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride—and after listening to this astonishingly inventive new audiobook, 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 audiobook, 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Santat offers an imaginative account of a boy’s car trip…[that] will make kids happy to go along for the ride.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “The conclusion is as neat as the bow on Grandma’s birthday gift (a clock). ‘Be patient,’ writes Caldecott Medalist Santat, dedicating the book to his son. ‘We have all the time in the world.’ His own patience is what harnesses the energy of his riotous story and gives it a laser focus. It’s a remarkable feat—a turbocharged adventure that’s also a meditation on the relative nature of time.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This imaginative take on the never-ending car ride is filled with surprises…As the child in the backseat continues to complain, the family car drives through the old West, onto a pirate plank, to a medieval joust, to a pyramid in ancient Egypt, through the dinosaur age, and into the future. Though initially alarmed, the family eventually enjoy the adventure and finally arrive at their destination.”
