My Side of the Car

author: Kate Feiffer
illustrator: Jules Feiffer

Sadie has wanted to go the zoo forever, but something always gets in the way. Not today! Today they are finally on their way, and nothing can stop them ó not a broken arm or a lost dog or a surprise visit. Not even her dadís observation: "Sadie, itís raining." Because when Sadie looks out her window, not only is it not raining on her side of the car, the sun is shining and people are watering their lawns and wearing sunglasses. Even when the road on Dadís side starts looking more like a river, Sadie can barely see a raindrop fall on her side of the car. This warmhearted tale of a childís optimism and a fatherís loving patience is guaranteed to tickle the funny bone, no matter the weather.

Wishful thinking and a wonderful daughter-and-dad rapport drive this charming collaboration between Kate Feiffer and her father, Jules Feiffer.
