"I'll be just a minute " Johnny MacGuffin's mother calls as she sails away past the purses and plates, up the up excalator in Bindle's department store.

Johnny is stuck waiting again.

The minutes crawl and soon Johnny is sure days have flown by, and months have come and gone. He's waited so long that he's even grown up, bought a house on the hill, and had kids

Bonny Becker reminds us all how hard and how funny waiting can be. Jack E. Davis's frenetic illustrations capture Johnny's overactive imagination perfectly and will have readers laughing out loud.
