Rosie Runs Away

Illustrated by Melissa Sweet

“Rosie [is] a winsome rabbit whose baby brother, Fat Mat, has taken over the household. In an effort to be helpful, Rosie carts her brother off on a mud-pie making and blueberry picking expedition – with predictably grubby results. Mama, needless to say, is not pleased; Rosie is sent to her room to play, but elects instead to run away…”
Publisher’s Weekly


“Any child who has ever felt misunderstood or unappreciated will sense an instant kinship with Rosie.”
Publisher’s Weekly


“Beginning readers will have little trouble with the short sentences and large type, and young listeners will enjoy the pictures of Rosie and her sweet surroundings.”
School Library Journal
