What's more fun than driving in a car with your entire family? Listening to another family in a car! Fortunately, the boisterous Tripp Diaries include enough songs, skits, interviews, and madcap adventures to keep even the most irritating family entertained. The story centers around an Australian family whose father has the bright idea of driving his family across the country for a vacation. 13-year-old Nick Tripp narrates much of the action, which includes the paterfamilias getting into trouble when he offers to help an old friend. The sound quality is top-notch, but the recording is so full of Australian references it might best be enjoyed by those who hail from Down Under.
