Getting ready for school is the perfect time to procrastinate! Whether she's an elephant at a waterhole, leader of an expedition to Mount Everest, or a star posing for paparazzi, Livi's imagination takes her on exciting adventures on her way to school. With stalling techniques as creative as this, it's a wonder she ever makes it to school at all! Sarah Maizes and Michael Paraskevas create another funny, fresh book for every parent who wants to foster creativity in their family's everyday routines.
