Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A father and son drive into the night. As the sky turns shades of deep blue and purple they watch for night animals, swap baseball stories, and keep a lookout for eighteen wheelers. But they have miles to go before they can sleep, and it's a real challenge to stay awake for a whole night of driving.

Celebrating the relationship between a father and his son, John Coy's spare, poetic text and Peter McCarty's striking black-and-white drawings (complete with gas pumps, cafes, and truck stops) capture the warmth and nostalgia of a very special road trip.

Synopsis:

A warm-hearted portrait of a simple event that encapsulates the bond between a father and a son.

This warm and thoughtful story about a father and son on an all-night drive to the mountains is just right for Father's Day.

Synopsis:

As father and son drive into the night, they watch the sunset, talk about baseball, sing cowboy songs, and even change a flat tire before pitching camp at daybreak.

About the Author

John Coy remembers the thrill of staying awake with his father on family road trips to the mountains. He now passes this love of night driving on to his daughter. A native of Minnesota, John Coy works as a writing teacher in St. Paul. This is his first picture book.

Peter McCarty has never forgotten his first road trip that took him to twenty states in twenty-eight days. His whirlwind drive through the country provided the inspiration for these drawings.

A graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Peter McCarty is the illustrator of Frozen Man by David Getz. He makes his picture-book debut with Night Driving.
