It’s Sunday, the day before the school week begins, and Alycat is nervous. She just knows that Monday is going to be the Mondayest Monday ever! On the playground, Alycat realizes she isn’t the only one suffering from the Sunday Scaries. It’s hard to ride a bike. What if Kit falls? The treehouse is so high. Will Spotty make it safely back down? The kittens band together to overcome their fears, but can they turn the Sunday Scaries into a Sunday Funday? The themes of the books in the Alycat Series all reflect a reliance on friendships, imagination, and creativity toward problem-solving.

Fans of Alycat and her friends will enjoy spotting references to the kittens’ daily adventures within these pages. Tips for a successful lemonade stand are included!

Praise for Alycat

Isn’t this just the cutest? The inside is equally adorable. Sunday is Alycat’s favorite day. Until she realizes the next day is Monday. And that gives her some anxiety. She tries to enjoy Mondays but….

In the end, her great group of friends encourage and help each other. By focusing on the good things, they help Alycat get over her fear. This story is beautifully written and the illustrations are presented in a fun way.
