When running away from home, these are the things you should pack.
- Four “Bone” comic books.
- One Hot Wheels treasury from the library.
- Two pairs of pajama pants.
- One pair of socks.
- One pair of (hopefully) clean underpants.
All of these things fit quite nicely in the striped top sheet of your bed, which can be slung over your shoulder, hobo-style. Be sure to notify everyone MULTIPLE TIMES that you are running away, otherwise it’s not for real.
(This has been a public service announcement from Henry, who has temporarily put off running away in order to play with his giant Tonka fire truck. Rest assured that he is still thinking about running away, however – you’re not out of the woods yet. )
