Paulsen and son
ROAD TRIP by Gary Paulsen and Jim Paulsen. Wendy Lamb Books (Random House), 2013.
Father and son Gary and Jim Paulsen team up for this riotous road trip. Dad announces the road trip early one morning. He does not give his son time to pack, but the two are off to rescue a puppy. They are accompanied by their "owner" dog, who also joins in as a narrator in this novel. Slowly, the road trip companions become 3 and then 4, a more diverse group of characters never before seen. From family relationships, to engine repair, to money problems, ROAD TRIP offers something for everyone, especially those less than avid readers.
