Alycat wakes up to seafood gumbo for breakfast, and even though her house is the first stop for the school bus, the bus is already full when she boards. Alycat’s whole day is turning topsy-turvy. What is happening? Young readers will tag along on Alycat’s adventures during her very “cattywampus” Wednesday and learn that a little help from some friends and a good attitude can make your day! The themes of the books in the Alycat Series all reflect a reliance on friendships, imagination, and creativity towards problem solving. The character traits of Alycat and her friends inspire and encourage young readers to find their own special gifts. People are talking . . . “When things aren’t purr-fect, what do you do to add a paws-itive spin to your day? Kids will fall in love with this topsy-turvy story of Alycat’s dreamy day going a bit cattywampus!” —Dion Leonard, New York Times bestselling author “Change can be scary and difficult to cope with, but Alycat and the Cattywampus Wednesday helps readers to understand that positive thinking and the right mindset can help make new or uncertain circumstances feel exciting and fun instead. This entertaining and gentle story illustrates important strategies for coping with change, such as reaching out to friends and thinking creatively.” —The Children’s Book Review The Alycat Series features five titles: Alycat and the Thursday Dessert Day, Alycat and the Monday Blues, Alycat and the Friendship Friday, Alycat and the Tournament Tuesday, and Alycat and the Cattywampus Wednesday.
