The Runaway Mitten
One day, a little mitten decides it’s time for an adventure. So with the help of his mother, he sets off across the great state of Michigan. From Sleeping Bear Dunes to Mackinac Island, he sees everything the biggest mitten in the world has to offer, and teaches little readers some facts about the state along the way.
The Runaway Pumpkin
When a little pumpkin wants to find out all about Halloween, he sets out on an adventure of the spookiest kind. With a little help from his mother, he explores a haunted house, dances to the “Monster Mash,” and experiences all kinds of otherworldly thrills.
The Runaway Santa
After all that time up at the North Pole, Santa Claus is getting antsy. So he sets off with Mrs. Claus to discover the world. He takes a ride on an elephant on an African safari, skis down the Swiss Alps, and compares his beard to Lincoln’s carved into Mount Rushmore.
