In the Australian seaside town of Woy Woy, the locals seem stuck waiting for their lives to begin. A man waits for the lake to be stocked with fish, a child waits for his grandmother to join at the bus stop, a newscaster waits for a big news break, and a romantic waits for a glimpse of her love while walking to their date.

All this waiting keeps life sleepily dull in Woy Woy. One community member that brings joy is a small, piano-playing mouse named Mordy. It seems that life drones on, when a sudden storm floods the town and poor Mordy is washed away! All the people wait to act, assuming it will be another individual that takes up the cause to save Mordy.

It takes the courage of a local dog, Tyrone, who leaps into action and becomes the hero of this stagnant town. Tyrone teaches a valuable lesson about not letting life pass by.

Told in playful rhymes and illustrated in soft, inviting watercolors, Waiting at Woy Woy will encourage little ones and their parents to seize the day.
