Come Home, Angus by Patrick Downes- OPTIONAL

Downes, Patrick. Come Home, Angus, PICTURE BOOK. Orchard Books, 2016. $16.99. Angus wakes up really angry. He yells at all of his pets and then his mother. He decides that he is going to run away. He walks and walks and goes so far that he doesn’t recognize where he is anymore. Angus realizes he doesn’t have any food and that he misses his pets and mother. Luckily, his mother has followed him and has brought him some lunch and his pets to cuddle with. This story was too disjointed. There’s no explanation for the anger, no explanation for why his mom is just suddenly there. You just have to assume she followed him, which might be a jump for younger readers. PRE-K- OPTIONAL.
