“Charlie The Tramp” Book Review + Giveaway (US, 12/14)

Please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks beavers are so flippin’ cute?! I seriously melt whenever I see a picture of a beaver online or in a book; I just can’t help myself!

Today, I have an awesome children’s book review and giveaway for “Charlie The Tramp” by Russel Hoban to share with you guys.


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.”
An American classic is back in a special 50th anniversary hardcover
Winner of the Boys Club of America Junior Book Award, 1968.


This book also has the CUTEST illustrations by Lillian Hoban. When I was little I always loved books with pictures, and truth be told, I still do! 😉 These illustrations really help bring the story to life and make you really feel like Charlie is your friend.
This book is targeted for kids ages 3-8, but I feel like it really “breaks the mold” and is great for kids young and old.
All in all, if you’re looking for a children’s book that will bring a smile to you ad your kiddos faces, this is the book for you.

  1. I would share this with my daughter. It looks just adorable and I know she would like the story. She enjoys having a new book to read at bedtime.


  2. Reading your review reminded me of something I heard on the news today; somewhere in Maryland a beaver walked into a dollar store and created quite a stir! I can just imagine. This sounds like a super cute book!

  4. I would share this book with my nephew. He visits a few times a month and sometimes he ends up spending the night so it would be nice to have a book to read to him.
