This sixth book about Yoko the cat by beloved bestselling author and artist Rosemary Wells is about keeping your cool in big, unfamiliar places!
Yoko and her mama are going on a trip to Japan! Yoko helps Mama get to and through the airport by reading signs along the way. By the time they get to their gate, Mama is exhausted. While Mama naps, Yoko goes to the washroom. But when Yoko takes the wrong exit, she finds herself in a completely different part of the terminal. Before she knows it, Yoko is on the moving walkway, zipping toward Baggage Claim. Will she be able to follow the signs back to her mama?
With her flair for sly humor, Rosemary Wells defuses an anxious situation by keeping Yoko cool and confident. Readers will enjoy reading the signs along with Yoko in this happy-ending story about navigating a very big but very friendly airport.

"Yoko... serves as a self-assured and observant guide to the airport experience, helping her mother find the right airline, moving through security with ease, and being attentive to the signs that appear as icons across the top of most pages....
