Vacation--no homework, no school, and no more teacher’s dirty looks! Unfortunately, it usually begins with the family sitting around somewhere or stuck in a plane, train, or car. BOR-IIIING! Fortunately, with these quizzes, puzzles, games, and doodles, the fun doesn’t have to wait, even if you do. And you can do them anywhere—no electricity needed—with just a pencil. Fill in travel quotes, writing in the name of anyone who says one of the phrases on the page—like "I have to go to the bathroom" or "I think we’re lost." Play gomoku, a two-person game that’s similar to tic-tac-toe. Plan the ultimate vacation—a week anywhere in the world. Draw creepy critters, try tongue-tripping-twisters, and unscramble anagrams. It’s all so entertaining that no one will ask the dreaded question: Are we there yet?
