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.
