* ''Literature/TheCandyShopWar'' involves every single adult being controlled by white fudge, making them essentially zombies, thus making the kids "mentally" separated from the adults rather than physically. As a result, are no help at all when the heroes request help. Or get attacked by wooden Indians.

* Almost constantly in ''Literature/GalaxyOfFear''. In the first several books the Arrandas and their uncle Hoole are wary of each other and distant. He doesn't like spending much time around them and has a lot of mysterious errands to go on, instead leaving them with his [[RobotBuddy droid assistant]] DV-9. Later in the series Hoole and the Arrandas are on much better terms and DV-9 is PutOnABus. They still end up apart fairly often, and a main general plot of the series is once lampshaded by Hoole.

As such, this is how lots of adventures start, or how they escalate.

* ''FindingNemo'': Sort of an inversion, since it's the adult that has to go on the grand adventure to find his son. Not that Nemo doesn't have an adventure of his own.
