The Runaways

Author(s): Ulf Stark

Junior Fiction 5-9-year-olds | 2019 - 2020 Best Books for Summer

Grandpa’s in the hospital and hating it. He swears at the nurses and makes trouble for everyone. Dad finds it too stressful to visit, but Gottfried Junior visits Grandpa as often as he’s allowed, and when he’s not allowed, he goes anyway.

Grandpa thinks only of the place he was happiest—the island where he lived with Grandma. He wants to go back one last time, but they won’t let him out of the hospital.

Gottfried Junior and Grandpa take things into their own hands. If running away is the only way to the island, then they’ll be runaways.

Mim's Review - A touching little tale of the relationship between two generations and wanting one last adventure in old age.
