Frances's new baby sister seems to have everyone's attention. No one has time for Frances, until one day she decides to do something about it.
"e;Well,"e; said Frances, "e;things are not very good around here anymore. No clothes to wear. No raisins for the oatmeal. I think maybe I'll run away."e;
And she does, but not too far away. Just far enough so she can still hear her parents say how much she is missed.
This tender, realistic story about a familiar family situation has been a favorite with children everywhere. Now it is made even more special with Lillian Hoban's warm and inviting full-color illustrations, and readers of all ages will once again be entranced.
