Product description


Kid on the Go! is an honest, engaging, and sometimes humorous story that contains just the right amount of detail. It's a thought-provoking memoir of childhood and youth that drew me right in. McKee is an expert storyteller with a great sense of humor. - Crystal Otto, book blogger and reviewer, Reedsville, Wisconsin, USA

In Kid on the Go!, the author takes us back to his childhood where he discovers the strange features of his hometown of Elmira, Ontario, Canada. Enriched with details, including clever artwork by the author himself, along with family photographs, this memoir is both funny and insightful, clever and thought-provoking. -Nicole Pyles, writer, Portland, Oregon, USA

In Kid on the Go!, Neill McKee gives us well-told accounts of the pollution in the town, but tells humorous stories about his family, his teachers, his adolescent misadventures, his encounters with the 1960s counterculture, and his developing intellectual interests. - Bill Exley, retired English teacher, London, Ontario, Canada

I think this memoir is more than about venturing out in a geographical sense. It is about seeking new experiences, venturing out in a social sense, forming and valuing relationships with the stranger, the marginalized, and those who think differently. - Bruce Williamson, also now a senior "kid on the go," Port Hope, Ontario, Canada

Neill McKee has the ability to explain life's experiences in a way I can easily relate to. When I read about McKee's early adventures, I experienced a lot of reborn fun, joy, and memories of the projects my friends and I created with nothing but imagination and inspiration. - Charles Mann Rolison, retired, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

While this saga is an amusing trip down memory lane, it is also an intense drama of an unfolding life. In the last chapters and the postscript, we learn about the factors that led the author to an international career, traveling to Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and living in seven diverse countries. -Ken Frey Ed. D., retired management consultant, Milton, Ontario, Canada

Kid on the Go! does an impressive thing, it uses naive illustrations to tell an ever-evolving story of growth and maturation. Neill McKee covers his early life in approachable prose and conversational storytelling. The illustrations that accompany these anecdotes are similarly plucky, sketchy, and approachable. That juxtaposition is really captivating. -Dav Yendler, illustrator, Los Angeles, California, USA

People who grew up in small town North Americain the 40s, 50s and early 60s, when kids had freedom to roam the countryside, exploring its side roads, creeks, rivers, and woods, will find themselves snickering and laughing out loud as memories of their own youth pour forth. -Gwenda McCurdy, avid reader, Brampton Ontario, Canada
