Sinopsis: Keiran longs to be a paper boy. One day he gets his wish only to suffer an embarrassing mishap. But he soon recovers from his accident, regains his job, and at book's end Keiran comes to dream of the day he will actually drive the tram to Bondi Beach.
From Publishers Weekly:
Pluck wins the day in this tale from Australia. Kieran watches Saxon, the paper boy, clamber expertly along the sides of the tram, making change and offering papers to customers speedily, before the tram moves on to the next stop. When he turns nine, Kieran, too, sells papers, but Saxon warns him away from the tram work, firmly claiming his territory. But Kieran soon establishes his competence and his courage in one stunning episode. When it is over, Kieran has a new paper route, but finds himself already planning much grander schemes. Hathorn's story, set in a bygone era, is a simple tale of a child's longing for those things just beyond his reach, and of the ways that dreams enliven everyday events. Vivas imbues her vistas with whimsical watercolors; in rusty browns and coppery shades, she warmly conveys the bustle of a city by the sea, and the tram that is its lifeline. Her characters seem to defy the space constraints of a square page: they reach out to readers, or squabble and taunt one another, filling up backgrounds with activities and inviting a closer look. Ages 4-8.
