Set in New York, this gorgeous picture book by Gus Gordon is a story about friendship, life in the big city, and following your dreams.

This is a tale about a big city.
It's a tale of hotdogs and music and the summertime subway breeze.
It's a tale of singing on rooftops and toffees that stick to your teeth.
But most of all, it's the tale of Herman and Rosie.

'Herman and Rosie is a beautiful, funny and quirky story of two unique souls who are destined to meet.' Manly Daily

'A beautiful, soulful and quirky tale, romantic and hopeful, with a big heart.' Newcastle Herald

'Gordon has created a bittersweet tale of solitude, longing and new beginnings in a complex story that asks a lot from the reader and richly rewards in return...very highligh recommended for ages 4 to 9 years.' Web Child

'Clever, sweet and brilliant in every way.' William Yeoman, The Weekend West

'An urban love story which touches the heart and stirs the imagination.' Canberra Times


'Quirky, soulful and alive . . . a book to treasure, like a favourite song.' Markus Zusak
