I would like to thank the publisher TaleBlade for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I had previously read a book that was written by B.C. R. Fegan called “Henry and the Hidden Treasure” and after I read that book, I wanted to read more books by B.C.R. Fegan! So, imagine my surprise and delight when I was offered the chance to read B.C.R. Fegan’s newest children’s book called “The Day that A Ran Away” and man, was it a blast to read through!
The book starts off with a young boy named Master Jet who was being asked by his teacher about why he has not written the alphabet for his assignment. Master Jet then goes on and explains about how each letter from the alphabet had suddenly ran away from him, such as “D” being scared of going to school and went into hiding, “F” getting lost in the forest, “H” being upset that the letters were leaving and “K” being annoyed by the whole thing.
Will the teacher buy Master Jet’s story?

B.C.R. Fegan has once again done a fantastic job at writing this book as the story is both fun and hilarious to read through! I loved the many different ways that each letter of the alphabet had disappeared, such as “A” running away and “L” being kidnapped and I found all the different ways that each letter had vanished from the story to be highly entertaining and hilarious! Lenny Wen’s artwork is both hilarious and cute to look at as all the characters in the story have large eyes that look so adorable, especially of the images of the cute little kitten that occasionally shows up on each page. I especially love the artwork of the letters themselves as each of them have unique designs that are based on their personalities, such as the letter “P” looking like a peacock and the letter “R” having curls in its hair and roses on its legs to indicate its prissy nature.
Overall, “The Day that A Ran Away” is a truly cute and hilarious book that children who want to learn about the alphabet will definitely get into! I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.
