Oscar and the midnight cat” is a wonderful book.

Using a naturalist style, Ron Brooks creates a private world around two characters: Mrs Rose and her dog, Oscar. This world will be altered with the arrival of a cat. The simple text just highlights a turn of events that is defined by the sequence of pictures, which are full of beauty and deep aesthetic sensitivity. These pictures are perfect for a story so beautiful and simple like this one is, with a focus on the ability to share. To sum up, it is an indispensable picture book (Antonio Ventura in Babar).
