Eugenie Fernandes has illustrated more than forty books for children, including, Mommies at Work and Daddies at Work by Eve Merriam. She lives in Ontario, Canada.
Ages 3-6. Elliot's mother scolds him for tracking mud across the kitchen floor, his father yells at him for making too much noise, and his sister tattles on him for bouncing on the bed. A small boy can put up with all of this. But when his parents plan to make him share his room with a visiting uncle, Elliot announces he's leaving, packs a suitcase, and heads out the door. Fernandes' illustrations are gay and colorful, but the overall effectiveness of the book could have been improved simply by tightening the design elements (most of the single-page illustrations are set within crisp frames, but some, unaccountably, are not). A small domestic drama typical of childhood, Elliot's trip around the block (he's too young to cross the street) and reunion with his family is a story that most young children will identify with and find reassuring. Buy as needed for larger picture-book collections. Annie Ayres
