Rosebud and Red Flannel
Illustrated by Mary Beth Owens
Recipient of the Maine Library Association’s Lupine Award
Red Flannel is a pair of red longjohns, and Rosebud is a delicate, lacy nightgown. On wash days they always hang side-by-side on the line. Red Flannel is in love with Rosebud, but he’s too shy and clumsy to say anything. Rosebud thinks it beneath her to talk to such a coarse fellow. When a sudden snowstorm threatens to freeze them on the line, Rosebud and Red Flannel take off on a harrowing adventure. This immensely popular story is brought to life by vivid and energetic illustrations. What Rosebud and Red Flannel find in themselves - and in each other - will delight readers of all ages.
