charliethetrampRussel Hoban has written some of the best classics in children’s literature. Bread and Jam for Frances and Bedtime for Frances are two of the most loved.

In 1966, Hoban wrote Charlie the Tramp, illustrated by his wife Lillian Hoban. Charlie is a young beaver who wants to grow up to be a tramp. His parents, much to the dismay of Charlie’s grandfather, allow him to experience the life of a homeless beaver. During this experience, Charlie hears, like young Samuel in the night, the call to his life’s work.

“You never know when a tramp will turn out to be a beaver.” -Grandfather Beaver.

Ideal for children ages 3-8, Charlie the Tramp is a memorable look into parents’ biggest fears and biggest hopes. What a moment when Charlie’s father looks over his nighttime work and resolves, “Any tramp that can make a pond like that is going to be some beaver one of these days.”
