Buﬀy and Sissy, the traveling kittens, are back for another adventure. In Buﬀy and Sissy Go On a Road Trip by Colleen Chapman, the kittens and their mother are taking a driving vacation. They visit three iconic National Parks in Wyoming, South Dakota, and Utah. All the fun and challenges of a road trip are here, from the long hours in a car to playing games and eating snacks while you travel. The kittens, of course, enjoy staying in a motel with a pool and camping out under the stars. Unique highlights from each of the parks are depicted. When the family arrives back home, they reminisce about their favorite parts of the trip. They are all eager for their next traveling adventure.
Buﬀy and Sissy Go On a Road Trip is a perfect story to share with young children who are going on their ﬁrst road trip. As a former children's librarian, I would often get requests from parents for books about the places they were going to visit on vacation. Chapman includes just enough information for the youngest travelers to get excited about what they are going to see. The illustrations by Ananta Mohanta are outstanding. Each of the kittens, and mom too, have their own style. I love their expressive faces and Mom's cat-eye glasses! Buﬀy and Sissy are distinct personalities from the way they dress to what interests them. Buﬀy and Sissy Go On a Road Trip is a fun story that both road trip warriors and armchair travelers will enjoy.
