Amber makes a bid to catch her father's attention.

Amber lo-o-o-v-e-s Kindergarten -- painting, looking at books, tying her shoes, sliding when it snows. But the one thing she can't control is being picked up on time. Her father is frequently late, so she must wait and wait and wait in the secretary's office after everyone else has left. It's so embarrassing.

To deal with her frustration, Amber concocts a world in which she sends her dad to wait for her -- on the moon -- while she has all kinds of wonderful adventures. This, she knows, would teach Dad a lesson he'd never forget, and all the dads from around the world would, like him, turn up on time to collect their children and embrace them. Back in the real world, Dad at last shows up and Amber makes a bid to catch his attention, to let him know what it feels like to be left alone in school -- and finally, maybe, he gets the point.

This delightful picture book combines the work of two extraordinary talents.
