* I have been given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review *

This is a fun and inventive take on the popular nonsense poem The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear. I love that it’s written and illustrated by a mother and daughter team – it’s so cool to do things like that in a family!

I read this with Little Moore as soon as it came through the door, and he’s had it before bed several times too. The gentle rhyming and pastel colour scheme mean it works grea

Based on Lear’s The Owl and the Pussycat, The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat is a delightful modern take on the poem.

The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat takes very little time to read, but the text rhymes well and provides some lovely new vocabulary for young children with words such as ‘dangling’ and ‘jangling’. Despite the textual brevity, I can see hours of fun and educational value in this book. it’s not just the main text that has wit and rhyme, but the small touches that rew

I always love reading rhyming books to my children so the fact that this one is loosely based on a very well known poem made me even more keen to read it.

This has been one of E's favourite bedtime stories in recent weeks, she loves looking at the beautiful, bright illustrations and spotting new things on each read-through.

One of our favourite things about this book is that E can "read" it back to me. This is because there aren't loads of words, just enough to tell the story, so after we had rea

~A Lily-May and Mummy Review~

Oh to be a child again!
With their wild imaginations and sense of adventure anything is possible and this story really brings those days to life.
A fun read about two children and their homemade ship out on the wild seas of imagination, and what an imagination they both have!!
We loved this story, anything to do with animals is a BIG hit in our house and there are tons of them in this book. Lily-May enjoyed pointing out all the different ones she spotted, some even new

Suitable for very young children only. The pictures are delightful, but it is just a series of pretty pictures.

If there was only a single word to sum up The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat, then it would be “adorable”. It covers the adventure, how the story of Owl and Pussycat is told and the illustrations.

There might not be that many words in this book, but there is a lot of adventure. The narration is lyrical, for reading aloud it almost feels like it should be sung – but I can’t confirm that as I didn’t test this theory.

Charlotte Cooke’s illustrations work amazingly with the story and each page

This is a great book for younger children, we go on a journey with the owl and the pussycat. This is explored through verse accompanied with beautiful illustrations. This is a story that has been adapted from the original version but should be one everyone shares with their child.

This is a book I would recommend to others to share with their children as they will get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
