Book review - The Owl and the Pussy-cat by Edward Lear

This Autumn, Puffin are publishing a beautiful new picture-book edition of the classic poem by Edward Lear, The Owl and the Pussy-cat. The book is illustrated by Charlotte Voake, with an introduction by Julia Donaldson.

The Owl and the Pussy-cat new book review

The Owl and the Pussy-cat is a classic poem which I'm sure is familiar to everyone. It tells the story of the Owl and the Pussy-cat that sail away together in their beautiful pea green boat. It's a short poem, but with such gorgeous illustrations it lends itself perfectly to the picture book format. I love the poem, and I really enjoyed sharing it with the children.

Julia Donaldson has written a sequel to the poem - The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-cat - which is also published by Puffin.

The Owl and the Pussy-cat gift edition is published on the 2nd October 2014. I received a copy of the book to review.
