About the Book

It’s 1923 and Leroy “Doodlebug” Barnstable is on the run. He stumbles into a travelling Chautauqua show where it’s easy to get lost—and easy to lose your heart. This funny and endearing novel is an absorbing read for boys and girls alike.

Praise for The Runaway:

“This likable protagonist makes for a fine introduction to an era before movies and radio
caused the Chautauqua to fade away.” — Kirkus Reviews
