About the Book

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. After enduring a cattywampus world pursuant to an unexpected pandemic, this book will resonate with readers to persevere through the wackiest and toughest of times.


My Review


Alycat and the Cattywampus Wednesday is Another Fun, Positive Story for Little Ones. The author guides readers along with her Alycat as she experiences a very backward, odd, "cattywampus" day! From switched up breakfasts and dinners to out-of-order classes and activities--Alycat keeps a positive attitude and makes the best of the changes during her mixed-up day! It's a fun story that little ones could easily relate to their own days and schedules--and imagine what they would do if they found their day scrambled about like Alycat's day!


Fun Illustrations Highlight Every Page. Alycat and the cast of characters are fun, colorful, and expressive in this cute little story. Readers will pick up on Alycat's concern and worry at times through her expressions and will also pick up on her relief as her story ends.


Would I Recommend Alycat and the Cattywampus Wednesday? The author gives readers a little positive story as her main character navigates an unforgettable day that doesn't seem quite right! While Alycat's unusual Wednesday is explained away--the author still offers readers and caregivers some tips and advice for dealing with their real-world cattywampus days! I enjoy the positive nature of the stories in this series, and this one is perfect as well. If you want fun characters with positive attitudes and light life lessons--this series and this book should be on your reading list.
