In the evening, cars rumbled into driveways.

In the evening, windows lit up.

In the evening, chimney tops puffed.

In the evening, the clouds were purple and pink.

 

 Oscar is shy, Charlie bold.

Oscar stays in, Charlie swings outside.

Can they ever be friends?

The enchanting tale of a friendship that buds, falters, recovers and blossoms.

 

‘This elegantly beautiful new picture Australian picture book is a sumptuous delight. Enchantingly poetic wording from Edwina Wyatt is brought to life through the soft-coloured magic of illustrator Gaye Chapman. This is a collaborative team to watch.’ Kate Murray, Babyology
