Format: Paperback
I do apologise for what amounts to a review that is as much about levelling the score as it is talking about a book, but...

This is a children's book, its fun and colourful, comical and entertaining! If that sounds like the kind of thing your child will like - then try this book! The illustrations are lovely, as is the story - and its something you can have a laugh and a joke about with your child! ('Oh, are you sure you ate all your dinner? Are you sure Billy didn't help you?" - you get the kind of thing, you're no doubt a parent or close relative or friend)

And finally - I felt compelled to post this to redress the balance upset caused by the reviewer before this - who may or may not be a moron?
Oh look, you've managed to intentionally mis-interpret the theme of a children's story to make it seem vaguely sinister! What a clever boy you are! Yes you are! Yes you are...

Excuse me while I bask in your hilarious jibe at an innocent story.

Ok, I'm done.

I love this book and would recommend it for young children and adults to read to their children! It addresses the issues dealt with when a child always seems to get the blame - something my son also called OSCAR can relate to as he ALWAYS seems to get the blame as well! So we always read this book to him when he was younger and it was always a favourite! It is a nice book and not at all sinister or about split personality (what a shame to try to portray it as this) It is simply about a little boy who has an imaginary friend, that's all! Anyway give it a go as i am sure it will become a firm favourite in your household too - as it has ours! I truly recommend it to all!
perfect and funny and there-fore 10/10!!
I have even just purchased a new replacement copy of this book as our's was well read! it is THAT good!! :-)
enjoy!! x

I feel I have to respond to the bad review as this was one of my favourite books as a child.

To the 1-star reviewer, it's not about a kid with a split personality, it's about a kid with an invisible (and real) friend. I assume you didn't read forwards ten or so pages to the end where you find out that the twist is that Oscar's 'imaginary' friend - Billy - actually does exist but none of the adults would believe him. I thought that this was a fantastic book, when I read it as a child (or was read it as a child), it's beautifully drawn (both physically and mentally).

I think that you might be looking at it with jaded adult eyes. First of all, children of that age probably/hopefully won't have a developed (or any) conception of split personalities (or rather, dissociative identity disorder); I didn't read it and think that Oscar had a mental illness (which he doesn't anyway, if you read to the end). I thought he was a kid doing kids stuff, everyone's had an experience as a child when they get blamed unfairly for something, and it's good to be able to sympathise with Oscar. For me at age 3 and 4 it was fun as it gives you a bit of a chill but is very amusing, and you take the side of Oscar - who's always trying to be good - and who is fully vindicated at the end when Billy finally makes his appearance.

I'd give it another go.

Oscar Got The Blame, by Tony Ross. A very good book for young children.
It was well described and was everything I expected when I received it.
