display_descriptionThe Runaways is an adventure filled with warmth and humor from one of the world's great writers. Grandpa's in the hospital and hating it. He swears at the nurses and makes trouble. Ulf's dad finds it too stressful to visit. But Ulf visits Grandpa as often as he's allowed, and when he's not allowed, he goes anyway. Grandpa thinks only of the place he was happiest--the island where he lived with Grandma before she died. He wants to go back, but they won't let him out of the hospital. Ulf and Grandpa take things into their own hands. If running away is the only way to get to the island, then they'll be runaways.
