Fred and Ted--beloved canine stars of P.D. Eastman's Big Dog . . . Little Dog and son Peter Eastman's Fred and Ted Go Camping and Fred and Ted Like to Fly--are on the move once again in Fred and Ted's Road Trip, the 100th Beginner Book published since Dr. Seuss launched the series in 1957 with The Cat in the Hat. In their latest adventure, Fred and Ted pack a picnic basket, jump in their cars, and hit the open road--but as usual, things don't go as the doggy duo plan. They encounter muddy roads, thunder and lightning, tire-piercing cacti, and overenthusiastic tire inflating that almost sends Fred into orbit Perfect for P. D. Eastman fans, dog lovers, and families on car trips, this is a beginner reader that harkens back to the best of the Beginner Books edited by the Good Doctor himself. Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.
