There is a valuable lesson for young and old in Mrs. D's children's book, Runaway Clothes. A young child wakes up to a closet empty of all her clothes. The hangers are upset with the way she disrespects her clothes by not putting them away where they belong, and they stage a walk-out.This makes the child think of her how she also treats her toys the same way, and she begins to see things differently. This is a colourful presentation of our affluent society and how little we appreciate what we have. The illustrations are wonderful, and will certainly be a pleaser with the young reader.
