A little mummy who wants to run away from home tells his mother how he will escape, but no matter what horrible creature he claims he will become or where he plans to go, she promises to be there with him, in a humorous parody of Margaret Wise Brown’s beloved story, The Runaway Bunny. Reprint.
Michael Rex has written and illustrated over 40 books for children, including the gruesomely hysterical, #1<i> New York Times</i> bestseller <i>Goodnight Goon</i>. His popular sword-swinging Fangbone! Graphic novels have been turned into an animated show that runs on Disney XD in the U.S., and many other markets worldwide. He visits schools across the country and internationally to share his books with students of all ages, and he has a master’s degree in Arts Education. His work covers a wide range of styles, from the simple, goofy rhymes of <i>Truck Duck</i>, to the heavily illustrated, yuck-filled <i>Icky Ricky</i> chapter books. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, two boys, and a dog named Roxy.
