Runaway Dinner by Allan Ahlberg, Etc

Book Description

Talk about fast food! A hilarious, high-speed tale from the inimitable Allan Ahlberg catch it if you can! What happens if someone's dinner decides that, well, it doesn't want to be eaten? For a hungry little boy named Banjo and a savory sausage named Melvin, it's a plight that can only result in a breathless escape and what a chase it is! Off speeds the sturdy sausage leading fork, knife, and plate, chair and table, a handful of fries with various French names, and three fat little peas out the door, down the street, and around the park, with poor Banjo taking up the rear. Will the famished boy ever catch them? And what (gulp) happens to Melvin if he does? Allan Ahlberg is in his element with this fast and funny tale, while Bruce Ingman's kid-friendly illustrations add visual comedy to the chase."
