What's Round Trip About

Publisher Summary

This book isn’t just the STORY of a family’s round trip - it IS a round trip! Read forward and look at the sights, then flip the book over to see something different on the way back. The black-and-white illustrations for the trip into the city become something different when the book is turned upside down for the journey home. Clouds turn into puddles, fields of wheat turn into rain, lightning becomes mountain trails, and building lights morph into stars. “Round Trip” was featured on Reading Rainbow, the acclaimed PBS-TV series celebrating books and reading.
