"Just a second, Mother, I'm a sleepy buttercup." Thus begins the typical morning around the home of a procrastinating and distracted kitty. Her clothes are on her blocks, she wants to chase a mouse, she's standing on her head. Hurry up, or you'll be late for school, Kitty! Children will recognize the situations that are making Kitty late. This is a simple, repetitive rhyming book with lovely watercolor illustrations.
