    The opening line of this story is Rose s husband died a long time ago Now she lived with her dog His name was John Brown John Brown is a very sweet sheepdog who is perfectly content with his and Rose s life together and Rose feels the same way That is until one night Rose spots the midnight cat pottering around in the garden.I wonder what the midnight cat represents I think sharing this book with upper KS2 pupils would give rise to some very interesting theories This book could be seen a The opening line of this story is Rose s husband died a long time ago Now she lived with her dog His name was John Brown John Brown is a very sweet sheepdog who is perfectly content with his and Rose s life together and Rose feels the same way That is until one night Rose spots the midnight cat pottering around in the garden.I w...

    When this was read to me a child, I was enchanted by the subtle cross hatch illustrations and the mysterious cat outside the window Rereading it as an adult, I found myself feeling cynical about the characters The dog was possessive, the old woman was manipulative a...

    I wish the dog were a normal, non talking dog I wish the dog learned to like the cat in a normal, animal way The sort of equal relationship between the old lady and the dog made the story weird If they are equals, why does she not respect the dog s preference to not let the cat in If they re not equals, why does she have to trick the dog into accepting the cat The way Rose pretended to be ill to guilt John Brown into doing what she wanted bothered me I m sure it was supposed to be funny or I wish the dog were a normal, non talking dog I wish the dog learned to like the cat in a normal, animal way The sort of equal relationship between the old lady and the dog made the story weird If they are equals, why does she not respect the do...

    I love the name of the dog and the relationship he has to Rose But, I must admit, I didn t like the ending I felt it was deceptive for Rose to go to bed and claim she was sick I would have preferred that she explain to the dogabout how she felt and acknowledge how he felt It seems she didn t really see his point of view very well I think I would have felt better if she had said that she was very sad about the cat, rather than sick I guess that word choice slightly spoiled the book I love the name of the dog and the relationship he has to Rose But, I must admit, I didn t like the ending I felt it was deceptive for Rose to go to bed and claim she was sick I would have preferred that she explain to the dogabout how she felt and acknowledge how he felt It seems she didn t really see his point of view very well I think I would have felt better if she had said that she was very sad about the cat, rather than sick I guess th...
