Hit the Road, Jack
In this delightful picture book, loosely inspired by Jack Kerouac's On the Road, a scat-singing, bebopping jackrabbit travels across the United States and marvels at all the wonders that the country reveals - from hopping on the subway in New York City to playing a jukebox in Chicago, and from gazing at Mount Rushmore to crossing the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Written in the rhythm and spirit of Beat poetry, Hit the Road, Jack is an exuberant story of experiencing all the country has to offer with wide-eyed awe.
