I Want to Go Home! is a 1985 Sesame Street storybook featuring Big Bird.

Big Bird goes on a trip to the beach, where his grandmother lives, but starts to feel homesick. He meets a boy named Wally there. Wally has his own special cave, which inspires Big Bird to tell him about his friend Mr. Snuffleupagus. Wally and Big Bird become friends -- playing catch in the water, digging in the sand, and sharing a popsicle every day. Also appearing are Ernie, Bert, Grover, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch.



This book was also recorded for the Big Bird StoryMagic toy in 1987, and adapted into a Start-to-Read video.
