In the Evening concerns itself with that ‘time of day’ when not only the light changes, but how our perceptions of the world around us can be affected too. It is the time described in a common French idiom as “the hour between the wolf and the dog” – when the light can cause you to confuse the friendly dog and the unfriendly wolf.’


- Dianne Cook, Buzzwords

In the Evening

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 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
