I am getting ready to go on a loooong road trip (Oregon to Nebraska) with kids ages 4, 6, and 16 and need something to help keep everyone entertained without driving myself and my teen crazy.  So nothing in the 4-8 set would be good for everyone, but there are many stories in the 9-12 classification that would be appropriate and enjoyable for all.  And I would like at least a 2/1 deal.  Titles and authors such as Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, The Wizard of OZ, Chronicles of Narnia, Beatrix Potter (Peter Rabbit, etc), Charlotte's Web, The Jungle Book, Just So Stories, Edith Nesbit, etc.   Stories need to be somewhat lengthy, as I don't want to have to switch tapes/CD's very often.  If you only have one audio book that I might be interested in, I wouldn't mind looking at your shelf to see what else you have, if you are offering a deal.  Thank you in advance for saving my sanity!  Travel DVD's are tempting, but I prefer not to resort to that, as I want them to be able to look around and experience the trip, as well as put the time to some educational use.
