PreSchool-Grade 2-Minutes seem like hours or even years to Johnny MacGuffin when his mother leaves him in a department store with his Aunt Mabel so that she can shop alone. Winter arrives, Johnny starts growing facial hair, marries, and has five children, all while waiting for his mom to return. He is brought back to a relieved reality when she finally arrives, but his smile fades away when she announces, "Now hurry up, dear./We've miles more shopping/and miles more chores." The sometimes-rhyming text moves along at a fast clip and the cartoon illustrations, drawn in colored pencils, add to the fun. This funny story is sure to strike a chord with children who have waited endlessly for someone or something.
