Herman and Rosie

herman-and-rosieWritten and Illustrated by Gus Gordon

Have you ever felt alone in a crowd? Herman and Rosie have. This sweet book follows the lives of two ordinary yet talented individuals. Herman and Rosie do not know each other at first. Both love music; both are lonely. One night Rosie follows the sound of Herman’s oboe and they are lonely no more. Though the story is touching, and the illustrations delightful for any age, the topic of the story is best suited for older students or adults. This is why I chose to add it to Jr. High fiction.
