What did you like about the book:   A cat and mouse adventure full of lots of cats.  The cats are on the hunt for the mouse named ‘Sleepy’.  They search for him at breakfast, their neighborhood block, at the downtown weekend parade, then at the beach, the peaks of Mount Snow, at the Tropical Swamp, the Wonder Slug Caves, and on the moon.  But Sleepy is nowhere to be found.  The cats are growing very sleepy as they head back home to bed.  And mom reminds them that the journey is more important than the destination in this rhyming text with colorful detailed illustrations.

Anything you didn’t like about it?  No

To whom would you recommend this book? A nice read aloud for little ones who love cats and a story starter discussion for focusing on the good in spending time with friends.

Who should buy this book?  Preschools, day cares, elementary schools, home and public libraries

Where would you shelve it ?  Picture books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? no
