An inspiring and happy tale that's bound to grab kids' imaginations, this story about friendship, life in the big city, and following your dreams is brought magically to life by this noted artist's magical illustrations.
Once upon a time in a very busy city, on a very busy street, in two very small apartments, lived Herman and Rosie. Herman liked playing the oboe, the smell of hot dogs in the winter, and watching films about the ocean. Rosie liked pancakes, listening to old jazz records, and watching films about the ocean. So near and yet so far, they couldn't be more different or more alike, and somehow, in the middle of this very busy city and their very busy lives, they discover they are meant to be together.
