Oscar and Arabella and Ormsby
By Neal Layton
Neal Layton once again captures the magic of the ice age in this tale about friendship.
Oscar and Arabella don't always see tusk to horn in this paperback edition. While two is company, three most definitely seems like a crowd... until one day when Arabella needs their help.
A simple text that perfectly captures the theme of friendship.
