I'm sure my mother read me this story as a moral tale – I was the elder sister who had to make room for a new sibling. The book tells the story of a dog, John Brown and his owner, Rose. One night a cat arrives and meows to be let in. But John Brown doesn’t want the cat around and is worried that his place will be usurped. He tells the cat to go away, but eventually must capitulate, in order to make Rose happy. I felt for poor John Brown, he was the first character I really connected with.
