Road Trips in Cars

Everyone, are you ready for our next interview? I hope you are ready because I have a room full of book characters coming to tell you about their author and illustrator.

“So, who is going to speak for everyone today?”

Pip

“I can speak for everyone and can you not ask them about our little road trip?  We had a few guests along the way and I’m not sure everyone was happy about it.”

“Sure, we can first talk about the author and illustrator.”

Pip

“The author of our book is Pat Brannon and she has written fifteen Christian and children’s books.  The illustrator is Natalie Totire Brinley.  Natalie is also a writer, crafter, and child care worker. She has written 22 books.

“Thanks Pip, can you now give us a clue about this group of characters I’m seeing with you?”

Pip

“Sure, they are all the animals I picked up on our vacation!  I love animals and they love me. I also think animals do not need to be alone.  Everyone loves company!”

“I enjoyed the vacation, like I said before, but I’m sure others was not as happy as I was.”

“It sounds like you had a great adventure you did not plan.”

Pip

“Exactly!  It was not planned but it worked out in the end. We had a wild ride and we made it home safely.”

“It sounds like a book filled with animals and an unplanned vacation excitement. We have all had vacations like this and I’m sure children will enjoy reading about Pip’s family vacation.”
