Late book

Little Miss Late

Little Miss Late is late for everything, and can't find a job. She tries to work in a bank, but by the time she gets there, the bank has closed. She tries to be a secretary for Mr. Snooty, but he goes home late. The job she gets is as a servant for Mr. Lazy. Because Mr. Lazy does everything much later than most people due to being lazy, this lines up perfectly with Little Miss Late, as she does everything later as well.

Trivia[]

  • Even though Little Miss Late is the eleventh book in the Little Miss series, she is placed fifteenth in the Little Miss Library, between Little Miss Dotty and Little Miss Lucky which were the seventeenth and eighteenth books in the Little Miss series, respectively, though they are respectively placed fourteenth and sixteenth in the Little Miss Library.
  • She is the first Little Miss to have another Little Miss in her book, if you don't count the ones that are mentioned and TV appearances.
  • Moral: Being late for work constantly as well as taking too long to do a job will likely get you fired.
