In a book which crosses the divide between picture books and first chapter books, readers are introduced to the Gaskitt family. There is a storyline for each member of the family: Mr Gaskitt in his car with an eccentric radio, Mrs Gaskitt answering a mysterious call to her taxi service, the children on the school bus, until all become intertwined in a twisting and turning car chase. In the penultimate chapter, the reason for Mr Gaskitt wearing so many clothes is finally revealed.
