First-time campers can be a lot of trouble! Caitlin agrees to be the buddy of a new camper. She and new camper Misha are assigned to the most rustic area where campers sleep in tents and cook over an open fire. Misha doesn't know anything about camp life. She trips over tent stakes, cries herself to sleep, and hides food in her backpack. Caitlin often gets frustrated as she teaches Misha what she needs to know. Caitlyn's Buddy describes fun camping activities, outdoor cooking, and the growing friendship of two very different girls. As the days pass, Misha learns the importance of teamwork and Caitlyn realizes everyone has something special to contribute. Then, after a campfire, Misha runs off into the dark night and Caitlin follows to stop her. Will Caitlin be able to forgive Misha for getting them lost? Will the two girls only be temporary tentmates or friends forever? Children, in grades 1 thru 4 (ages 5 to 9), especially girls who will be going to summer camp for the first time will enjoy the feeling of taking part in summer camp adventures and sharing the ups and downs of new friendships.

About the Author

As a child, Kathryn (Katie) Slattery enjoyed reading, drawing, and spending long days at the beach. Then, at the age of seventeen, she went to Europe with her family. The trip ignited her love for travel. She studied Art and English at U.C.L.A in the early 1960s. After graduation she continued her education in art and education at the University of the Americas in Mexico City. The years afterwards passed, filled with teaching art, English and cooking, traveling around the world, raising a family, and volunteering for the Girl Scouts of the USA. Finally, she returned to her early love of writing, concentrating first on creating stories and articles for young people. She has been published in several highly rated magazines for the youth market. Immigrant Soldier, based on her uncle's World War II experiences, is her first novel. Her children's early reader chapter books include Tagalong Caitlin, and the upcoming Caitlin's Buddy. Katie's travel memoir recounts two years driving across four continents in a VW van in the 1970s. Katie lives in Laguna Beach, California, only steps from her childhood home. Besides writing, her main interests are travel, cooking and painting.

Ron Whitacre is a professional sculptor first and foremost. Most of the time, he creates wonderfully evocative work in welded steel. But he is also loves to draw. His illustrations for Tagalong Caitlin and Caitlin's Buddy are rendered in pen and ink and pencil. Ron's charming animal mascots (lizards and squirrels) greet the reader at the start of each chapter, giving one more reason to keep turning the pages.
