A beautiful foiled collector's edition to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Alison Lester's classic and bestselling picture book about a family's road trip around Australia.
The year I turned eight, Mum and Dad took us on a trip around Australia. Luke, Billy and I missed school for the whole winter term.

Join Grace and her family on their adventurous and sometimes funny expedition. This delightful picture book takes young readers on a journey across Australia, as a family explores the outback, the bush, and the coast. Along the way, kids will learn about the geography, culture, and people of our fascinating country, all through the eyes of a lovable family.

With its beautiful illustrations, engaging storytelling, and celebration of family and Australian life, Are We There Yet? is a must-read for children who are ready to discover the wonders of the world.
