From debut talent Juliana Gaddis and NY Times bestselling illustrator John Joseph comes the story of two families with identical minivans (save for one tiny bumper sticker!) who unknowingly switch vehicles for the day when their respective toddlers swap key fobs at the grocery store.

With sparse text and bright, cinematic art Minivan Mix-Up weaves a silly (and relatable!) story about two different families celebrating their commonality and ultimately finding friendship.
