When Noah realizes that he has only made "five major accomplishments" by the time he is eight, he decides to run away in search of adventure. Struck by guilt, regret, and hunger, he befriends a puppetmaker along the way--who weaves a story powerful enough to remind Noah exactly what he's running away from--and why he must return immediately. Poignant and sad, this book will be remembered by all children--and teens--who meet Noah and his troubled family. (Middle Reader) ~ Reviewed by Aubrey Restifo
