Description

Maddie has had enough. Enough of her parents telling her what to do. Enough of her grouchy brother Alexander and her goofy brother Julian. Enough of her adorable sister Angelbaby Sugarkins, even.

So Maddie decides to run away from home. She works out an elaborate plan: she packs a bag for her journey, she sabotages her schoolbus. But soon, walking down a strange street with nothing to eat, she panics. She runs to a busy shopping mall, but doesn't see anyone she knows. She gets terribly lost in a deep, dark forest. Just when she thinks all hope is lost, however, Maddie discovers a surprise that changes everything.

That's Enough, Maddie! is a story about the difficulties of everyday family life, and the dangers of acting impulsively.

Editorial Reviews

"The seven-to ten-year-old reader will find this book appealing because of its format. The pocketbook size, the short sentences, large print, and accessible language all contribute to the thrilling experience of reading a "grown-up" book from cover to cover. Well-defined chapters, as outlined in the table of contents, provide satisfying stopping places for those that need them. For those young readers trying to make the jump from picture-books, Marie-Louise Gay's thirteen sparse black-and-white illustrations provide plenty of humorous interest without intruding on the text. All in all, this is a very satisfying book for the readership at which it is aimed. Recommended."

— Canadian Materials

Her [Leblanc's style is breezy and humorous, and this 10-chapter book should appeal to 9-year old looking for stories longer than picture books. The many charming illustrations by award-winning artist Marie-Louise Gay add a witty dimension to this gentle story of an older sister who feels like a martyr but learns that home is best. This novel would be a good choice for Grade 3 students, where the ensuing discussions could touch on handling relationships within the family and school community."

— Children's Book Review Annual

"Maddie is a particularly delightful combination of determination and sensitivity."

— Canadian Book Review Annual

"That's Enough, Maddie! is a great story... an exciting adventure children in this age group should enjoy."

— The Chronicle-Herald
