Once upon a time, there was a group of little animals that decided to go to town. However, Andy the cat hadn’t finished drawing. The animals were so excited that they don’t notice they left Andy behind. There are so many exciting things to do in town! They can dance wild dervishes with the city dogs, ride the carousel, eat cotton candy, and listen to music. The day goes by in a flash. That evening, the little animals gather by the fountain. Once they realize Andy hasn’t shown up, they start to worry. Where is he? Has something happened to him?

Kertu Sillaste’s fifth picture book points out how you can forget everything going on around you while making art.
