Publisher's Summary

The number-one nonfiction read that made John Cleese and Danny Wallace laugh and Terry Wogan and Richard Briers cry. If you think writing a guidebook is easy, think again. A family's 8,000 miles round Britain in a Vauxhall Astra...
They were bored, broke, burned out, and turning 40, so when Ben and Dinah saw the advert looking for a husband and wife team with young kids to write a guidebook about family travel around Britain, they jumped at the chance. With naïve visions of staring moodily across Coniston Water and savouring Cornish pasties, they embark on a mad-cap five-month trip with daughter Phoebe, four, and son Charlie, two, embracing the freedom of the open road with a spirit of discovery and an industrial supply of baby wipes.

What did you love best about Are We Nearly There Yet??

I loved best the interaction between the author and his wife and his children. I loved the hilarity of the descriptions of the towns visited.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Dinah, the wife.


Which scene was your favorite?

In the animal park with the lions. The world's largest pencil. The penthouse scene in Edinburgh.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A family's car journey through Britain with two tots. Don't really know as I am not up on films.


Any additional comments?

The back story and account of the author's father's declining health and end was poignant, but not overdone. It read REAL. One felt as if present.
