Runaway Radish

by Jessie Haas
Illustrated by Margot Apple

Published by Greenwillow Books / HarperCollins, 2001
56 pages
ISBN: 0-688-16688-1

Ages 5 - 8

Radish's first little girl was Judy. She was too small to make him do anything. "Radish liked that." Radish's next little girl was Nina. She was also too small to make him do anything. "Radish liked that." What Radish the pony doesn't like is the fact that each of his little girls grows up, becoming too big to ride him. When Judy is too big he goes to Nina. Now that Nina is too big, what will Radish do? Radish runs away to Judy, and she (now old enough to drive!) has a wonderful solution in this superb chapter story by Jesse Haas. Margot Apple's black-and-white illustrations lend a timeless visual quality to a book that children will enjoy reading or hearing read aloud. CCBC categories: Easy Fiction.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
