This book is like From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler...but instead of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, these two friends are running away to somewhere a little more modern - Ikea.
Frankie and Walter aren't really running away. Just like the kids in their favorite book, they are running to somewhere. Specifically, a massive furniture store. They've been obsessed with the Ikea catalog for years. So they make a plan, pack their backpacks, give their parents the sleepover switcheroo...and they're in.
One night all on their own, with no grown-ups or little brothers.
One night of couch jumping, pillow forts, and unlimited soda refills.
One night of surprises and twinkle lights and secrets they have each been keeping - and waiting to share.
One unforgettable night in Ikea.
