Oscar is no ordinary cat, lying around yawning. He lives at Hope House; there are seventy-three bedrooms and a large park so all day long he can be busy, helping out the grandpas and grandmas who live there as well as the doctors and the nurses.
But there can be a time when Oscar must stay and watch. For he is not just a cat, he is a ‘Guardian Cat’ and he knows when he is needed, when it is time to stay.
Based on a true story of a cat who watches over his friends, this is a beautifully illustrated and thought-provoking picture book for children and parents to talk together about our last journey.
