Synopsis

Rosebud and Red Flannel by Ethel Pochocki, Mary Beth Owens

Red Flannel is a pair of woolen long johns, and Rosebud is a lacy, delicate nightgown. On wash days they hang side by side on the clothesline. Red Flannel is in love with Rosebud, but he's too clumsy and shy to speak to her. For her part, Rosebud feels it beneath her dignity to converse with such a coarse fellow. One day, when a sudden snowstorm threatens to freeze them on the line, Rosebud and Red Flannel take off on a harrowing adventure. Will they survive howling wind and bitter wind only to be eaten by cows? In this Lupine Award-winning book, Ethel Pochocki has created a hero and heroine of timeless appeal, and Mary Beth Owens's energetic watercolor illustrations infuse them with radiance. What Rosebud and Red Flannel find within themselves-and in each other- will warm every heart.
