Rosebud & Red Flannel

Ethel Pochocki, Author, Ellington Duke, Author, Mary Beth Owens, Illustrator Henry Holt & Company $14.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8050-1213-2
Hanging on the line with the rest of the wash, Rosebud (a beauteous nightgown) chooses to ignore Red Flannel (the well-worn long johns), who loves her dearly. Rosebud has no use for this ``coarse fellow.'' After all, the lace-edged nightgown was made by hand in France, while the long johns were purchased from the bargain table at an Army-Navy surplus store. Despite Rosebud's indifference, Red Flannel continually somersaults about in the wind, trying to impress her. One winter day, in the middle of a fierce snowstorm that blows the clothes high into the air, the devoted garment puts his life on the line for her, and she finally recognizes his worth. Employing many fanciful and heartwarming touches, Pochocki tells a sweet, if slightly corny story. Yet it is Owens's detail-rich watercolors--equally effectively depicting tranquil interior scenes and the raging blizzard outdoors--that steal the show. Ages 4-8. (Feb.)
