In the sequel to Travels With My Family, the family is on the road again -- this time to spend a year in a tiny village in southern France.

They experiences the spring migration of sheep up to the mountain pastures, the annual running of the bulls (in which Charlie's father is trapped in a phone booth by a raging bull), and other adventures large and small. Most of all, though, Charlie and his little brother, Max, grow fond of their new neighbors -- the man who steals ducks from the local river, the neighbor's dog who sleeps right in the middle of the street and their new friends Rachid and Ahmed, who teach them how to play soccer in the village square.

Editorial Reviews

"...full of good humour...this novel will hit a home run..." - Globe and Mail"...what makes this book so delightful is the style. It is easy to believe that this is the narrative of a boy about ten years old. Besides the events and people he describes, there are the pungent asides about his parents and little brother. Readers of the same age will really enjoy this tale." - Multicultural Review"...[In On the Road Again] the adventures are quirky and funny but still have a true-to-life feel. This is the perfect read-together book to enjoy during your family vacation." - Together Magazine"A perfect sequel, liberally illustrated with Gay's good-humored sketches...brims with anecdotal entertainment for the earliest of armchair travelers." - Kirkus Reviews"Each short chapter is a charming snapshot of the everyday life and characters in rural France...While a comic thread runs through the novel, many facts about culture and geography are peppered profusely in the narrative that both parents and young readers will find amusing and edifying. On the Road Again! is a delightful follow up to Travels with My Family (2006) by the husband and wife team of Marie-Louise Gay and David Homel...The collboration features black and white illustrations in Gay's inimitable style. Move over Peter Mayle. This is A Year in Provence for the junior armchair traveler." - CM Magazine
