Oscar Ollie Brown is vexed and perplexed. Even worse, he’s worried that his mom might be “off her bean.” Whether he’s holding his tongue or dropping everything … or following some other instruction his mother gives him, Oscar finds that doing what he’s told never seems to work out quite the way he expects. From rescuing his goldfish, Slick, to chasing his cat, Sammy, there’s never a dull moment at the Brown house. But, the thing that really keeps Oscar busy is trying to figure out why it’s not always a good idea to do exactly what his mom tells him!

About the Author

Valerie Sherrard first decided to become an author when she was in grade six! Her homeroom teacher that year, Mr. Alf Lower, praised and encouraged her efforts and instilled in her a lifelong belief in her ability to write. After producing about a dozen books for teens, Sherrard turned her hand to picture books. There’s a COW Under My Bed! introduces Oscar Ollie Brown, who will be embarking on his second adventure in There’s a Goldfish in my Shoe! in the fall of 2009. Since becoming a published author, Sherrard has enjoyed visiting many classrooms and libraries to speak to young people about writing, literacy, and most of all, finding and following your dreams. Born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Valerie has spent time in a number of provinces, including her current home of New Brunswick. She lives in Miramichi with her husband Brent and their four cats: Lilly, Thragg, Patootie and Cody.
