The Day that A ran away is a beautifully illustrated rhyming book to read to your preschool aged child or for young readers to read themselves. Learning the letters of the alphabet is fun and entertaining in this book.

The Day That A Ran Away is an amusing story about a little boy named Master Jet. Master Jet is an imaginative boy, who has found himself in quite a predicament—his homework is incomplete and it’s not his fault. As he explains to his teacher, for one reason or another, the letters have all disappeared from his book, gone off on their merry ways, and he doesn’t know when they’re coming back!
In a new and clever rendition of the alphabet, Fe ...more
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 ...more
The zany, colorful illustrations wouldn’t let me go. I kept leaning in to see what was hidden on each page. Don’t rush from page to page. Take time to look at everything. There were some hidden messages and fun learning tools used in the pictures. And the story was a crazy adventure. The letters were actual characters and ran willy nilly everywhe ...more
The first thing that caught my eye was the how colorful the pictures in the book were. The illustrator is nothing but talented, and he was able to hypnotize the reader with the drawings. Being a children’s book the illustrator used colorful and appealing images, that children under the age of ten love. Reading this book with a child is not only a pleasant experience but also good for the child’s perfection of their grammar.
One thing I really loved was that the author star ...more
Things are going bad for poor Jet -- his teacher has noticed that he hasn't finished his assignment of writing out the Alphabet. So he explains to Mrs. May that he did, in fact, do it, but . . . well, did you read the title? A ran away.
From there, Jet goes on to explain why each letter isn't on his paper. D was scared, I just didn't want to, something nefarious might have gone on with L, and so on. Each letter gets its own page with a fant ...more
publisher, TaleBlade Press, which was kind enough to send me an actual hard copy of the book.

On the story's first page, young Jet faces a common dilemma: he hasn't completed his homework assignment.
Or wait--he has! But no sooner had he finished writing out the alphabet in his school notebook then (gasp) the letter A ra ...more
B.C.R. Fegan’s children’s book is fun from the beginning to the end. At its core, the story line attempts to explain why the young Master Jet doesn’t have his alphabet written down. As I was reading, I imagine Master Jet ...more
I've read a few of the other books by Fegan, and if you've been following my reviews at all, you'll know that I love these books. And this one is definitely no exception. It's a lot of fun to read, the story is well done, and the illustrations, as always, are completely gorgeous.
Kids love to play with different ways of approaching the alphabet, and I'm sure that this one will be no exception.

Master Jet (loved this name) must write the ABCs for his teacher. But he can't! When she asks him the reason, he explains what happened to each of the letters. Every single one has their own reasons for not being present. The question is...will the teacher accept his explanation?
This is a bright book, packed with tons of quirky silliness and imagination. The school scenes only take up a couple of pages...which in the begin ...more
Having a daughter in kindergarten, and learning the alphabet now still, she found this book wonderful, funny, and wanted to ...more
The pages were bright and colorful. They went smoothly with the story being told. Each letter of the alphabet had it ...more
The illustrations are very cute and interactive. The story is in a sing-songy rhyming rhythm that young Jet uses to make an excuse as to why his homework hasn’t been completed.
I thought that this was a very cute book and I liked that the teacher “played along” with Master Jet, without letting him get away with the excuse either. He still had to do his homework in the end.
Overall, this is a good book to have to take kids all t ...more
The Day that A Ran Away is a wonderful children's story, and well written for the child audience. The illustrations are remarkable, and fit the nature of the story. It has vibrant colors that bring the eye to the characters as well as the words that show the story. A is the letter of the alphabet that ran away, and it brings in all of the letters of the alphabet and how A running away affected all of them. It's highly imaginative and brings the reader right in, wondering why A ...more
