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!
