I was surprised by this story, as I did not like it at first, but I came to appreciate the character development over time. Rosebud is a precious silk sleeping garment that the owner of the house got as a present for Christmas. Because of the material she is made of, she was portrayed as a snobby, pretentious character that only talked to those she believed were worthy. Red Flannel was a regular work shirt that had been through some tough situations because he had patches on his body. Based on the two personalities, the reader can find differences in the characters and relate their situation to real life. I enjoyed the illustrations on each page and the personification of the characters. It was a good book to read, although I did not like it at first. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0892724749, Hardcover)

Red Flannel, a pair of long johns, and Rosebud, a delicate nightgown, hang side-by-side on the line. Red Flannel loves Rosebud, but she isn't interested in such a coarse fellow. One day a sudden snowstorm threatens to freeze them on the line, and they take off together on a harrowing adventure. Ethel Pochocki has created a hero and heroine of timeless appeal, and Mary Beth Owens's energetic watercolors infuse them with radiant life. What Rosebud and Red Flannel find within themselves--and in each other--will warm every heart.
