JOHN BROWN, ROSE AND THE MIDNIGHT CAT, story by Jenny Wagner and illustrations by Ron Brooks is a beautiful book that can be shared together with children and adults as I did with my friend, Myra. We related to the sweet story of longtime companionship between the elderly woman Rose and her large, shaggy, loving dog John Brown. Both were content with their close-knit friendship but while Rose was ready to open her heart and home to the the Midnight Cat, John Brown was reluctant to allow the addition of this black cat needing food and love. He was not sure he wanted to share his beloved Rose. By the book's end, John Brown has overcome his difficult and complicated emotion: jealousy. This is the perfect book to help children get ready for a baby brother or sister.
I remembered when a black cat adopted us one day. Cats choose their own home. I named him Snuggles.
