Oscar Seeks a Friend

It’s not easy for a skeleton boy to make new friends. Oscar worries that his appearance is too frightful to attract potential playmates. A chance encounter with a pigtailed girl leads to a series of colorful adventures, illustrated with layers of textured collages. Oscar’s night scenes contrast with the girl’s rainbow sunshine. Translated from its original Polish, Oscar’s story is a lovely reminder that friendship often grows where it is least expected.
