41 Reasons I'm Staying In: A Celebration of Introverts

In a world of seemingly unending social obligations, we could all use a night off.

In 41 Reasons I 'm Staying In, illustrator and self-proclaimed introvert Hallie Heald imaginatively portrays engaging and sometimes outlandish excuses to avoid leaving home.

With each page comes a new room and character, pursuing their obsessions, hobbies, interests, and sudden whims with gusto:

plotting world takeover, learning magic, mooning over a crush, evading taxes, and beyond.

This ark and humorous celebration of introverts offers a unique look into their private worlds and reminds us of the deep fulfillment and joy we can find in spending time alone.

Lovingly illustrated with lots of fun little extras, these drawings make Heald ’ s desire for introverts of all types come through loud and clear.

But then it kept coming through over and over, with ozens of holds on a dozen copies, and I was overcome with FOMO and put myself into the queue.Turns out my initial impression was right and it really is a kin of nothing book.

This seems like it ’ s more for older kids and up.
