The Old Man New Products, Picture Books, Social Issues
Day breaks over the town. Wake up, everybody! It’s time to go to school. It’s time for the old man to get up, too. The night was icy and he’s hungry. His name? He no longer knows…
This is the story of a person with no job, no family, no home—a nobody, who can’t even remember his name. But his day changes when he is noticed by a child.
Drawn in soft, watercolour pencil, this is an important story for our times. This gentle, compelling book will appeal to children’s sense of justice and to every reader’s compassion.
On a chilly day, a homeless man wanders lonely through the streets, until a child’s kindness lights up his world. It’s not just the sharing of a sandwich or the smile that unlocks hope, though – her real gift turns out to be much more profound. A picture-book treasure. – Best 50 Kids Books 2018, The Listener –
