From the Publisher
Annotation As his parents prepare to go out for the evening without him, a young boy tries to think of a way to get them to stay home. He complains that the babysitter will make him eat vegetables. He says he's getting a bad fever. He says he'll run away from home. Despite all the boys tactics, the parents calmly continue to prepare for their evening out and ready their son for the arrival of his babysitter. Colored pencil illustrations accompany the text.
First Line Don't go. I don't want you to go. I don't want you to go to a French restaurant and leave me home. I want you to go to McDonald's and take me with you.
Editors Note The young narrator of this amusing and familiar tale absolutely, positively does not want his parents to go out to dinner and leave him with a baby-sitter. "Both parents and kids will identify with this tale. . . . The story's inherent humor is highlighted by Chorao's imaginative color pictures".--Booklist. Full color throughout.
