Poor Oscar! His life is plagued with creatures he can't see. A cow licks his head every night, and that's just for starters. He's also had ants in his pants and a frog in his throguh, but try as he might, he can't seem to find them. Even so, he knows they're there. How? Because his mother tells him so!
