A Good Read: The Beginner's Guide to Running Away From Home

If you're planning to run away, the first thing you need is a reason, and this book outlines some. The new baby, early bedtimes, your mom ruined your whole life. It suggests places to run away to. It tells you what to pack and how to pack it. It tells you how to write a note before you leave.
Imagine your parents' faces when they read it. If it looks like they're about to burst into tears, you'll know your note is perfect. 
The Beginner's Guide to Running Away From Home by Jennifer Huget is illustrated by Red Nis. This is a very good story, full of bravery and suspense. And the illustrations are fabulous! The illustrator built all the characters, then set them up in settings with real objects, and photographed them. It's a very unique and interesting way to illustrate a book!

Even if you're not planning to run away from home, I think you'll enjoy this book. It's in the library, in the picture book section, with a spine label that says H for Huget.
