Itsy Mitsy Runs Away - Elanna Allen



Released May 2011

Atheneum

Reviewed by Bob Walch

She is really, really tired of bedtime, so Itsy Mitsy has decided to run away. Rather than talk his daughter out of it, Mitsy’s dad offers to help her pack. Smart move dad!

He begins by suggesting that Mitsy take her favorite dinosaur, Mr. Roar, along.  As dad’s “suggestions” keep coming, Mitsy to go from a suitcase to her wagon to carry all the stuff. And still her father has suggests there are more things she might need.

Of course when he suggests she take the entire house and the lawn, the story reaches the ridiculous point, which is the whole idea anyhow! It is then everyone realizes Itsy Mitsy might as well stay home, which is probably a pretty good idea because the child is now very tired.

If you have an Itsy Mitsy in your household who doesn’t relish bedtime, this cute, humorous story might help get him or her “in the mood” for an evening snooze!
