The Lovereading4Kids comment

In her warm and readily recognisable illustrations, award winning illustrator Shirley Hughes always captures the small but important details of how young children feel.

When Mum is ill one day, Dad says Lily has to go to Melanie’s house, but Lily doesn’t want to go! Thankfully, through the course of the day Lily finds lots of new things that she likes including a baby and a dog and when Dad comes to fetch her, she doesn’t want to go home!

Synopsis

Don't Want to Go! by Shirley Hughes

Mum is ill and Dad has to go to work, so Lily will have to go to Melanie's house for the day. Dad says she'll have lots of fun, but there's a problem: Lily doesn't want to go! Join Lily as she braves Melanie's house, and realises that doing new things needn't be scary after all.

Reviews

Hughes is such a phenomenon -- this is as good as anything she's done.
