Oscar feels wild, and ends up on the moon. How will he get home to his boy? ( )
  melodyreads | Oct 23, 2014 |
This one really made an impression on my kid. We read it just a few times (you know, maybe 3 to 5 times -- relatively few for the toddler set) but months later she still periodically references the cat on the moon. So I guess that makes this one a stand-out. ( )

Oscar the cat loves to jump places where he can see everything. He jumps so high that he makes it to the moon where he meets some mooncats. After playing and having fun, he's ready to come home but the mooncats try to convince him to stay. Oscar hitches a ride on the back of a cow and makes it back home to "his boy." Pictures are bold, detailed and drawn from interesting perspectives. I enjoyed the use of adjectives but thought some of the word choice too advanced for this age group- peak, scolded, pearly, etc. Mooncats and space cow are a little far-fetched but will remind parents of forbidden fruit or Sirens.

a cat tells the story about his boy, and how he hopped away from him all the way to the moon, then found his way back. Sweet story. Great preK-1st ( )

Oscar is a cat who loves his owner – a little boy, and loves to leap to high places. One day he gets really excited and ends up leaping all the way to the moon where he makes new friends, or at least he thought so. Will he be able to come back home? Plasticine, acrylics, collage, and computer graphics give us the exact sight Oscar has when he leaps to higher places taking us with him.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618563164, Hardcover)

Oscar the cat loves his boy. He also loves to climb way up where he can see everything. He jumps onto the fridge, onto the bookshelf, and onto the roof of the garage, but if he jumps just a little bit higher, his view would be out of this world. With the mightiest leap of his life, Oscar makes it all the way to the moon. Oscar makes some new friends there.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:24:51 -0400)

Feeling more than a little wild, Oscar the cat leaps from one high spot to another until he lands on the Moon, where he plays with the mooncats until his boy begins to call and he must find a way back home or risk becoming a mooncat, himself.
