AN EXCERPT ABOUT THE BOOK ~
Charlie the Beaver wants to be a tramp when he grows up. “Tramps don’t have to learn how to chop down trees and how to roll logs and how to build dams. Tramps just tramp around and have a good time. Tramps carry sticks with little bundles tied to them. They sleep in a field when the weather is nice, and when it rains they sleep in a barn.” Charlie sets off with his bundle. But when he hears water trickling, he can’t get to sleep. Will he be able to resist the urge to make it stop? As Grandfather Beaver says, “You never know when a tramp will turn out to be a beaver.”
It’s the Winner of the Boys Club of America Junior Book Award, 1968. You can find Charlie over here on the Plough site.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~
