|Read E-pub ⚛ John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat ß Rose s dog feels he can look after her without any help from a cat, but Rose has different ideas This is a classic Australian picture book, that every school library has tattered copies of It has been around since the 70s and is still very much in print It definitely has the feel of an older style of picture book, as the illustrations pen cross hatchings and water colour as well as the story itself have amature feel, not at all feel good or cartoony.This is the story of Rose, a widow, who lives with her dog, John Brown They have a quiet but lovely life together, one of routine This is a classic Australian picture book, that every school library has tattered copies of It has been around since the 70s and is still very much in print It definitely has the feel of an older style of picture book, as the illustrations pen cross hatchings and water colour as well as the story itself have amature feel, not at all feel good or cartoony.This is the story of Rose, a widow, who lives with her dog, John Brown They have a quiet but lovely life together, one of routine and companionship When a cat turns up outside at night, that life is threatened for John Brown, anyway Rose tries to befriend the cat, but John Brown is jealous and pretends not to even see the cat When Rose becomes sick and doesn t want to get out of bed, though, he finally realises that the midnight cat can bring new life to his beloved companion.It s a very sweet story though laced with undertones of sadness I think this is why it wasn t a favourite of mine as a child I was a very sensitive child and the story was too upsetting for me in a good way But I still avoided it, going instead for upbeat picture books like my favourite one, Quentin Blake sMister MagnoliaBut it s not a story you can forget, so I got a copy of this recently to add to the collection, for it is a wonderful story, a thought provoking story, and kids love it with good reason Note I didn t read this I saw it on Sammy s Story Shop This story is appalling Rose, an old woman, and John Brown, her dog, live together happily, until one day the Midnight Cat begins lurking around the house Rose likes the cat and makes overtures towards it, but John Brown feels threatened and is afraid that a Rose might not have enough love for both him and the cat, and b the balance of their happy relationship will be changed if the cat moves in, and maybe not for the better Unde Note I didn t read this I saw it on Sammy s Story Shop This story is appalling Rose, an old woman, and

yes But no Poor John Brown is presented as a villain as he tries to keep the cat from encroaching further Rose demonstrates no empathy for his position Then she resorts to pure manipulation in order to trick John Brown into accepting the cat She claims to be ill, takes to her bed, and refuses to get up and feed John Brown or let him out, until he asks, Would you feel better if the cat came in Oh, yes, of course she would She leaps out of bed, lets the cat in, and they all live happily ever after WTF What is supposed to be the message from this book John Brown deserves to have his feelings recognized, acknowledged, and addressed by Rose, who is clearly the adult in this scenario Instead, his emotions are ignored and his attempts to express how he feels through his behaviour are demonized, by Rose and the author What kind of a relationship is modelled here Not a healthy one, that s for sure If Rose is representing a mother, John Brown a child, and the Midnight Cat a new member of the family baby, step parent, whatever , I can guarantee you that John Brown is probably going to be suffering from depression and emotional confusion, and will end up messing up most of his own relationships down the road as a result of this kind of manipulative, invalidating, abusive refusing to feed him really parenting by Rose, and its discouragement avoidance of any genuine, honest communication I would be willing to read this to children as an example of what not to do, followed by a discussion of how to handle the Midnight Cat situation honestly and openly, without resorting to lying and trickery But the book itself sucks, and is possibly toxic for children living in families with this kind of manipulative interaction, because the story says it s great and even leads to a happy ending NOT recommended Rose, an elderly lady and John Brown, her dog are content living together until a cat appears in the yard For some reason, Rose wants to bring the cat indoors John Brown, who s either jealous, OR protective, wants the cat to remain outside The old lady plays sick until John Brown bows to her wishes.WTF I have actually seen this book on a video which was apart of Weston Woods and I enjoyed it then and I enjoy it now John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat is a children s book by Jenny Wagner along with illustrations by Ron Brooks and it is about how an old woman named Rose wanted to have the midnight cat over for company, but her dog, John Brown, will not allow it John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat is a great tale of true friendship that children everyone will enjoy for many years This I have actually seen this book on a video which was apart of Weston Woods and I enjoyed it then and I enjoy it now John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat is a children s book

Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat is a great tale of true friendship that children everyone will enjoy for many years This book was apart of my childhood and it has always remained favorite story of mine for many years Jenny Wagner had done an excellent job at writing this book about friendship and jealousy I loved the way that Jenny Wagner brought out the theme of jealousy in this book as it was shown in a way that was never shown in many children s books before I was amazed at the slight intensity of John Brown s jealousy towards the midnight cat as he went as far as to tell the midnight cat off and I think that many children will actually see the damage that jealousy could have on the family as John Brown s relationship with Rose slightly intensified and also many children will easily relate to John Brown s predicament as they probably felt jealous whenever a new sibling or relative comes to the family Ron Brooks illustrations are extremely beautiful, especially of the images of Rose and John Brown being together I loved the images of Rose and John Brown as John Brown is drawn as a black and white sheep dog while Rose is drawn as an elderly kind hearted woman who wears a pink jacket, a yellow dress and pink slippers which indicates her kind nature I especially loved the image of the midnight cat as it seems to glow in the dark and yellow eyes that also glow and it has black fur which makes it look mysterious.The only problem I had with this book was the message of this book seems a bit unclear to me When John Brown became jealous of the midnight cat and Rose kept on asking to invite the midnight cat inside the house, I felt that Rose should have assured John Brown that she will always care about him even if she has the midnight cat as company and the way Rose rarely mentions that to John Brown sort of makes me a bit uncomfortable I think that if parents go through the phrase where their child is jealous of another child s company, they should always assure the child that they will always love them no matter what situation takes place.Overall, John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat is a cute story for children of all ages could enjoy for many years, however parents might want to reassure their children that they will always love them if a new sibling or a new relative comes to the family before they read them this book
