Oscar The Italian Cat (Paperback)


Oscar and Mercy are going on holiday!

Oscar has some big life decisions to make but, in true Oscar style, nothing quite goes according to plan.

Interspersed with recognisable Venetian landmarks, this humorous tale will take you on a colourful and winding tour along the canals of Venice, meeting lots of interesting characters on the way!

A joyous tribute to the beauty and magic of Venetian life and the people lucky enough to call it home.

“The illustrations are superb. It is evident that author and illustrator had as much fun producing the book as we have reading it!”
