"There are no strangers, only friends we have not yet met." Oscar was a little boy with a big problem. His beautiful village, where his family lived for centuries, had been taken over by strangers. Everywhere he looked, Oscar found odd people with unusual outfits, customs, and behaviors. He did not like these people at all and feared what would happen if they stayed. Then, his father took him on a journey to visit other lands and people-in the big city, in the mountains, and at the seaside. Oscar found friendly, kind people wherever he went. By meeting people, learning about cultures, and being kind, Oscar learned there are no strangers. The book Oscar takes readers through how people can come together and accept their differences. This book is a celebration of culture, art, and language. Oscar is written in English and Spanish. It features original paintings by Denver artist Colleen Hennessy.
