Dog Ear Publishing releases “Runaway Clothes” by Mrs. D.

A new illustrated children’s book explores what might happen if a little girl’s clothes become tired of being treated poorly.

(PRWEB) June 26, 2014 -- Do you have a young lady in your home who is a less than perfect housekeeper? This new book might be just what the doctor ordered. Taking care of things properly is important or they just might go on strike. A new illustrated children’s book explores what might happen if a little girl’s clothes grow tired of being treated poorly. When Nika wakes up one morning and opens her closet, all her clothes have disappeared, leaving behind only hangers. She can’t even change out of her pajamas because all her dresses, shirts, pants and even socks have disappeared. Even the hangers decide to leave.

In “Runaway Clothes,” Nika learns that she should take care of her clothes because they are tired of being flung in heaps in her closet. Soon she begins to fear that her toys will leave, too, so she takes steps to make them feel cherished. As the day wears on, the clothes realize that Nika has learned a lesson, and even the hangers realize home is where they need to be. Colorful cartoon images by Chanoa, a freelance illustrator who works on children’s books and anime, add a whimsical note to this story, which offers a gentle lesson about the importance of taking care of things.

Author Mrs. D., Olga D’Agostino, is an award-winning children’s author. Two of her children’s books, “The Trees Have Hearts” and “Good Morning, World,” won Mom’s Choice Awards in 2013. Mrs. D. was born and raised in western Ukraine and studied at the Lviv Business College, working in the food industry. She and her two daughters, Viktoriya and Veronika, came to the United States in 1992 and she ran her own business. The author, a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, lives in Smithville, N.J., with her husband Patrick. She has published six children’s books and a short story for adult readers. She is working on several new books for children and adults, including more adventures in the Carlo the Mouse series and her new books “The Royal Palm,” “Who Is Most Important in the Fridge,” “That Is How Things Are,” “The Mysterious Life Inside a Closet” and “A Taste of Bread.”
