Poor Buddy Brown. He didn't get enough sleep last night because of his cat and now he is having a crazy day that's full of surprises. With its rhyme and repetition and delightful illustrations, the story reminds us in a fun, humorous way of the importance of a good night's sleep. Brown's cat slept with him (and on him) and now he's very tired. At breakfast he pours his cereal on the floor and eats it with a fork. Instead of taking his backpack to school he takes his cat Lucky. Lucky jumps onto Cool Rockin' Loretta's escaped pet pig, and the whole class goes crazy chasing after the cat riding the pig. Kids will want you to read this book to them again and again and with its silly sounding tongue twister of a refrain, they are sure to ask for it by name. Like any good children's book, this one appeals to children and adults alike. You won't want to sleep through this fun story.
