I enjoyed this duo in "Big Dog, Little Dog" but in this story not so much. It's like "let's do the opposite of each other". That can get really annoying really fast. The book is just okay; a little disappointed . He is the same author that wrote the great book "Best Nest" so I was expecting a little more. It may be fun for little ones under the age of 3. I wouldn't read it to a child older than that.

Fred and Ted!! I loved growing up with them, and it's nice that the son has carried on his father's work and characters. I still think these are great early reader books. I always enjoyed their opposite natures and actions. And I adored their little cars! This is a fun trip for the kids to join along.

fred and ted's road trip was a great starters book for kids. i was surprised being a dr. seuss book there was none of the normal rhymes. it was appropriate length but did seem as though the story line was all over. good book though.

This book is a great follow-up to P. D. Eastman's original Fred and Ted story. While the plot isn't quite as focused, the illustrations are just as fun.

She didn't want to read a book to me by herself since school let out, but she did a great job with this one.

5 stars, as declared by both a 4 year old and a nearly 8 year old, who also crowned Ted as the smarter of the two dogs. Great to read out loud with your little ones.
Kristin Hamley
A little dull to read if your kids want to read it a lot. But they do like these Fred and Ted books, so it's hard for me not to like them, too.

An okay read, however the ending was so abrupt and awkward , that even my 4 year old son noticed.
