By the Side of the Road by Jules Feiffer. New York: Michael Di Capua Books: Hyperion Books for Children, 2002. ISBN: 0786809086

This is a book that both children and adults will enjoy. It is more pictures than text, but tells a story that practically everyone will relate to. Children fighting in the back seat of the car, and the parents telling them to behave, or they’ll stop the car, and let them out. We’ve all been there! Only this time, the child chooses to get out, and just stay by the side of the road! Where this leads is into a kind of fantasy land that could never happen except in a child’s mind, but that everyone can immediately appreciate. I’d tell you what happens, but I don’t want to spoil the ending. Go to your local library, and check it out!
