Review by Sarah on 16th March, 2012
4 stars "Billy on the 'Mother Road'"

Much like Billy, I've wanted to travel US Route 66 for as long as I can remember. I was worried when the movie Cars came out that everyone else would want to do it to and it would turn into 2000 miles of Disneyland. But that doesn't seem to be the case. Billy met some amazing people on his long drive, didn't always find good food and didn't always find the right road but it still sounds like a trip of lifetime.

I've seen the TV version of this, the book is just as good with great colour photos and extra stories that they obviously couldn't fit into the TV show.

Billy writes in an easy conversational style and I thoroughly enjoyed reading his book.
