The Runaway Shirt – Kathy MacMillan, Julia Castano


★★★★ ½

“I think I will fold this shirt next,” she said. “First one sleeve, then the other. Then I fold it in half.”

A “lady” and a “shirt” (aka a mom and her child wearing an oversized shirt) have quite the adventure.

The lady is insisting on folding the shirt…but the shirt has other plans.

…the shirt did not stay folded.

The shirt begins running all over the house as the lady tries to fold it over and over.

Will the shirt get folded? Or will the lady be chasing the shirt around forever?

Ohmygosh. This one was cuuuuute!

I absolutely adored the concept – of the lady (mom) and shirt (her kid) playing pretend as they’re doing laundry.

It was so light-hearted and fun!

The silly actions of the kid and the mom’s insistence of “folding” the shirt made for a fun cat-and-mouse sort of book.

The illustrations were spot-on and truly gave this book a delightful and whimsical air. The artist did a fantastic job at depicting the kid’s expressions and the mom’s reactions.

All in all, this was a fabulous little picture book!

A huge thank you to Familius Publishing, Kathy MacMillan and Julia Castano for a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
