Runaway Clothes

Runaway Clothes - Mrs. D. Nika wakes up one morning to find all her clothes missing. Then the grumpy old wooden hanger tells her a few things she doesn't want to hear about how she's been treating her belongings. Will Nika change her lazy ways?

This is a cute story, but the ending is a bit contrived and predictable. I felt like I was being hammered over the head with the lesson the story was so obviously trying to teach. The author's writing style is beautiful, though a bit too old-fashioned for this modern tale. The subject matter would be better served by a simple picture book, with much less text.

I received this book in return for an honest review.
