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. (from the first line)
A child, on the verge of being left behind by parents who are going out for the evening, comes up with a variety of pleas and excuses *Author: Viorst, Judith/ Chorao, Kay (ILT) *Publication Date: 1992/03/31 *Binding Type: Paperback *Grade Level: 1-2 *Language: English *Depth: 0.25 *Width: 7.00 *Height: 9.00
From the Publisher:
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.
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.
