Not wanting to take a nap, Little Spotted Cat heads for the hills where she jumps, leaps, and plays while Mama Cat keeps a watchful eye and calls to her from a distance, in an amusing tale about a very spunky feline.

Alyssa Satin Capucilli is the author of the popular Biscuit series.From Booklist:
PreS-K. Napping means sacrificing playtime, something Little Spotted Cat is unwilling to do despite Mother's repeated calls. Off he sprints, denying sleepiness in a series of mildly destructive antics that include breaking a flowerpot and getting soggy and muddy. Capucilli, author of the Biscuit books, narrates the mischief through energetic bursts of repeated words and satisfying rhymes (he "push-pushed the yarn. He pull-pull-pulled the yarn. In and out! Here and there! Yarn, yarn, yarn, EVERYWHERE!"), which call forth Janette Sebring Lowrey's beloved The Poky Little Puppy (1942). Indeed, Andreasen's stylized oil illustrations, more akin to his recent With a Little Help from Daddy (2003) than to the historical treatments for which he is best known, emphasize the similarity between Cat and his equally clumsy canine predecessor. Little ones will gravitate to Cat's plush cuddliness, and recognize in the story their own reluctance to miss out on fun. Jennifer Mattson
