Synopsis: A baby, born five minutes late, grows up being five minutes behind for everything until he meets his own true love and discovers he's right on time after all.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-2-- Being born five minutes late is just the beginning of this fellow's time troubles as he loses athletic events and even his bride by always arriving five minutes behind schedule. He is heartened by an advertisement offering Princess Carrie's hand in marriage but once again finds himself arriving late. The last shall be first in this satisfying ending, for the princess also was born five minutes late and decides that this latecomer is the man for her. The rollicking rhymed text mixes reality and the highly unlikely. The tone is lighthearted, clinched by the pair's conclusion that time is relative. Glasser's spindly people show a limited range of expression and physical characteristics. Her warm oil pastels are softly shaped and surrounded by ample white backdrop to the large-type text. Although most illustrations appear one to a page, many details are too small for group sharing, and it will take a sharp eye to see that a magazine picture and not Princess Carrie herself is at the foot of the hero's bed. A book that will be enjoyed by children with a well-established sense of time and the concepts of early and late. --Jane Saliers, Atlanta-Fulton Public Library
