Childrens Story Telling - Oscar The Ferry Cat

About

FREE EVENT just turn up!!

Molly Arbuthnott - Oscar the ferry cat and Oscar the hebridean cat. In April 2014 Oscar, the Arbuthnott's beloved family cat, went missing on a Caledonian Macbrayne ferry. The curious cat managed to open the car window by stepping on the control. The family returned to the car in Oban to find paw prints on the bonnet… but no cat. Despite weeks of searching, Oscar was never found. His ongoing adventures are forever immortalised in the pages of these tales.

Molly Arbuthnott is a 30 year old primary school teacher. Born and brought up in Scotland, she feels the sea and mountains are part of her home and heritage. Having worked with children she understands what young children most relate to and enjoy; namely repetition and simple, catchy language. She has been travelling to the Outer Hebrides all her life, accompanied always by the cat and dogs. It was a fateful day in 2014 when Oscar disappeared. Though without such an event there would be no story.

Agnes Treherne is a Sussex based illustrator who studied fine art at the University of Edinburgh.

"This is an utterly entrancing book-a story that is beautifully told and exquisitely illustrated." Alexander McCall Smith

"I love the illustrations and conversations with various new friends." Rosamunde Pilcher

"A beautiful story with exquisite illustrations." Abi Elphinstone
