Cute kittens fill the book, Alycat and the Cattywampus Wednesday. Alycat and her brother Bugsy live with their parents. One morning Alycat came down for breakfast, but her mother served dinner instead. Alycat was happy about it even though she didn’t understand the reason. When she got on the bus, the driver had taken the driving route backwards. All throughout her day everything was backwards. She didn’t understand all the changes, but was cheerful.
Alycat hoped that the next day would be back to normal. When she woke up thinking it was now Thursday, her dad said it was Wednesday. So, all the backwards events were nothing but a dream. Alycat showed her family and friends that she could accept change and have a great attitude.
I love this beautiful hardback book. It’s high quality design is attractive and the illustrations are so lovely. I love the message that is conveyed with Alycat’s positive outlook no matter what changes came her way.
