Inspired by his love of Woody Guthrie's Riding In My Car , award winning illustrator Scott Menchin invites readers on an exciting cross-country road trip with a family of dogs!

This interactive novelty format features pull-tabs, pop-ups, and lift-the-flaps on every page, and makes kids feel like they're really coming along for the ride, visiting some of America's most notable landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon and more! Hidden beneath each flap are fun American facts for the child readers and interesting biographical details about Woody Guthrie for adults.

The entire song will be hosted on www.ridinginmycarbook.com so readers can read and sing along!
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "A cartoon dog family drives from New York City to San Francisco in a wood-paneled convertible to the lyrics of Woody Guthrie's "Riding in My Car." As the dogs visit landmarks like the White House and Mt. Rushmore, bits of trivia are concealed by flaps. Menchin pays homage to Guthrie himself: the dogs drive past his childhood home in Okemah, Okla., and the lyrics to "This Land Is Your Land" appear throughout as well. Fun touches (a wheel lets six desert animals cross the road) and crisp photo-collage art make this a lively trip; Guthrie's song is available on an accompanying Web site for read- or sing-along. Ages 5-up. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
