Itsy Mitsy runs away by Elanna Allen -ADVISABLE

Allen, Elanna Itsy Mitsy runs away, 40pgs. Atheneum, 2011. $12.40.
This is the story of a run away! Itsy Mitsy doesn’t want to go to bed. She will do anything to get out of it, including leaving home! Each time she tries to leave her Dad kindly reminds her of something she had forgotten. Each time Mitsy corrects the problem and attempts to leave again. Will she ever be prepared to leave her home and set out on her own?
This adorable story has a cute central character who isn’t your typical girl, in fact her favorite toy is a dinosaur. Her Dad is a smart and funny character as well. The plot and wording are great fun! The artwork has a dated feel, but it’s still cute and the scene shots are really creative.
