Lucy's Big Mess by Kim Yannayon is the story of a little cat who has to stay indoors due to rain. She finds umpteen ways to keep herself occupied on that rainy day. She becomes a construction worker, a doctor, a mum, and a princess. By the time the day ends, her room is so messy that her mother finds it annoying. Lucy is still waiting for the adventure to begin.
This is a perfect story for children. The author makes the book even more attractive with colorful, eye-catching illustrations. The book also gives ideas to little children on how to spend their time when confined to their homes due to rain or snow. Lucy is like any other child who messes up their room after playing. The book tells them why their room should be cleaned up and toys put away after playtime is over. The author gets that message across to children very cleverly and in a subtle manner. Lucy is a cute little kitty that all kids will like. Her antics are adorable too. The illustrator breathes life into the characters with some beautiful images which are important in any children's story book.
Lucy's Big Mess is an ideal bedtime story and it is a good book to introduce children to reading. It can be used by teachers in classrooms and also as a story for read-aloud. It is a great book for school libraries. Lucy will remain in readers' hearts long after they put the book down.
