Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

His mother and father are getting dressed to go out to dinner together. He doesn't want them to go! They're going out and leaving him with a sitter. He hates that a lot! He pleads with them. He bargains with them. He threatens to run away to a family that doesn't ever go out for the evening. He tells them he's sick, with a temperature of maybe a hundred and ten. And he tells them he won't — he'll never — say good-bye.

Every child, and every child's parent, will recognize this oh-so-familiar struggle between grown-ups trying to go out for an evening and a child who is fiercely determined to make them stay. It's hard to say good-bye — but maybe a book that helps you to laugh can make saying good-bye a little easier.

About the Author

Judith Viorst says that she has been writing always — "or at least since I was seven or eight, when I composed an ode to my dead parents, both of whom were alive and well and, when they read my poem, extremely annoyed." This is her tenth children's book. She has also written several books of poetry and prose for adults, and is a contributing editor to Redbook magazine. Mrs. Viorst lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband, Milton Viorst, a political writer. They have three sons — Anthony, Nicholas, and Alexander.
