Publisher Summary

Inspired by the true story of Oscar, a special cat who watches over the residents of Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island.

The story is told from Oscar's perspective as he watches over his friends during their most important journey. This is a unique and touching picture book that can be used to help talk to children about their grandparents' final journey, not as something tragic, but as a moment of reconciliation and understanding.

Paolo Domeniconi studied art and worked for several years in advertising before focusing on children's book illustration. He lives in Spilamberto, Italy.
