Outside the wind blew. Ooooh! The trees groaned. Ahhhhh! And the tiny wooden house creaked. Eeeeeek!

Inside, a delicious roast dinner was cooking.

The little old man was expecting visitors. The little old woman said no one would come.

Who was right? Come inside where it's cosy and warm, and wait . . .

You might get a big surprise.


Here is a gentle story about home and hearth, about the comfort of ritual, and about opening your heart to the possibilities of life.

From the one and only Pamela Allen.

    Comments about One Sunday:

    This isn't the usual kids book that requires lound noises or uses tactile pages to engage its young reader. It is a somewhat slowpaced story of a somewhat isolated elderly couple that pine for company with a surprising twist. Of all the new books that I have bought for my 18 month old, this was the one he's requested for the most. I was somewhat surprised.

    Pamela Allen

    Pamela Allen is a phenomenon in the world of children's literature. For almost thirty years her picture books have enchanted generations of children in Australia and overseas and many of her titles have won prestigious awards and commendations. She has earned classic status through the enduring popularity of her stories with the very young.

    Pamela's books are full of the music of language; they are 'fragments of theatre', designed to be read aloud and shared between an adult and a child. Eight of Pamela's titles were adapted for the stage by Patch Theatre Company, an Grandpa and Thomas won the Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award: Early Childhood and The Potato People was named an Honour Book in the same category in 2003, and Grandpa and Thomas and the Green Umbrella was shortlisted for the same award in 2007, as was Shhh! Little Mouse in 2008. Is Your Grandmother a Goanna? won a 2008 Speech Pathology of Australia Book of the Year Award, as did Our Daft Dog Danny in 2010.
