Christensen, Lars Saabye: Buster

When Bess and her family turn in for the night, the cat Buster wakes up. That’s because a cat is awake at night and sleeps during the day. Buster sees everything that moves, and hears everything that makes a sound, and he sneaks out into the darkness of the night. Buster is tough, a little lazy, and perhaps a touch arrogant. He’s a cat, isn’t he?

Buster has a dream, which is a bit of a surprise.
