Frances's new baby sister seems to have everyone's attention. No one has time for Frances, until one day she decides to do something about it.

"Well," said Frances, "things are not very good around here anymore. No clothes to wear. No raisins for the oatmeal. I think maybe I'll run away."

And she does, but not too far away. Just far enough so she can still hear her parents say how much she is missed.

This tender, realistic story about a familiar family situation has been a favorite with children everywhere. Now it is made even more special with Lillian Hoban's warm and inviting full-color illustrations, and readers of all ages will once again be entranced.
