Children's LiteratureIn a unique experience readers travel along with Patty and her little sister as they tackle imaginary adventures in the big red bus. The bus goes wherever Patty, the expert driver, chooses to take it. Along the way she and her co-pilot little sister reach the top of tall mountains and the very bottom of deep oceans, the middle of bustling cities, a circus, and the moon. While Patty gets to explore the ocean and every other place they go, she always tells her little sister to stay inside or to get out only where it is safe. Little does she know that her sister has her own adventures happening simultaneously with those in which Patty performs extremely brave deeds. Illustrations impart this information in a humorous way and they are one reason readers will pick up this book to read over and over again. The six by six inch size of the book is easy for little hands to handle. Simple text splattered with many one-syllable words offers success to young readers. Patty's adventures may give readers the opportunity to use their own imaginations for fun and exciting travel. 2005, Alfred A. Knopf, Ages 4 to 7.
