Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this delightful picture book, loosely inspired by Jack Kerouacandrsquo;s On the Road, a scat-singing, bebopping jackrabbit travels across the United States and marvels at all the wonders that the country revealsandmdash;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.

Praise for Hit the Road, Jack

STARRED REVIEW

andquot;Itandrsquo;s not a biography or an introduction to Kerouacandrsquo;s work; instead, itandrsquo;s a tribute to his spirit and his era.andquot;

andmdash;Publishers Weekly, starred review

andquot;MacDonaldandrsquo;s golden-hued watercolors and pencil crayons present 1940s America as something of a paradise, with the neon diner signs and jazz clubs just as beautiful as the rolling hills and majestic mountains...andquot;

andmdash;Booklist

andquot;Joining the ranks of such age- and genre-defying picture books.. is this homage to Jack Kerouac.andquot;

andmdash;The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

andquot;The book pays homage to Kerouac while encouraging a love of the country, writing and wanderlust through Jack.andquot;

andmdash;Reading Today

andquot;The illustrations look like something out of a 1950s picture book, and everything andmdash; the poetry and the drawings andmdash; convey a sense of exuberance and excitement.andrdquo;

andmdash;Wired's Geek Dad

andldquo;Burleighandrsquo;s writing has a wonderful rhythm and the book reads aloud beautifully.andrdquo;

andmdash;Library Media Connection

Review:

"Dylan's 1974 anthem unfolds as a series of vignettes following the growth of a musician/activist (his clean-cut blondness is a far cry from the scruffiness of the real Dylan). 'May you grow up to be righteous,/ May you grow up to be true' finds the hero fist-bumping an African-American school chum; 'May you have a strong foundation/ When the winds of changes shift' captures him on the front lines of a peace demonstration. Rogers's line drawings may surprise admirers of his Jazz ABZ: the chilly rendering style and the flat, digitally manipulated compositions recall 1960s low-budget animation. The key to this book's likeliest audience, however, rests in the many visual shout-outs to Dylan's career (they're all explained in an endnote). DA Pennebaker can be seen filming the peace march, while Edie Sedgwick, Joan Baez and other hipster icons are among the marchers; another spread depicts the Greenwich Village clubs where Dylan played in the 1960s, and throws in references to both 'Lay, Lady, Lay' (a big brass bed glimpsed through a window) and the cover of the 1963 album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. Baby boomers will have a blast decoding it all. All ages. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Bob Dylan's classic 1974 anthem Forever Young is reimagined by award-willing illustrator Rogers. In this picture book, the lyrics follow the story of a young boy who travels through Dylan's life, living in the footsteps of a musical legend. Full color.

Synopsis:

Since it first appeared on the 1974 album andlt;iandgt;Planet Wavesandlt;/iandgt;, "Forever Young" has been one of Bob Dylan's most beloved songs. Now award-winning artist Paul Rogers gives us a new interpretation of the lyrics. With images inspired by classic Dylan songs and pieces of his life, this is a bold and touching tribute to an anthem whose message will always stay forever young.
