The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat
Written by Coral Rumble
Illustrate by Charlotte Cooke
“The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a box on the living room floor,
They sailed away for a year and a day,
And these are the things that they saw…..”
Join two curious children on a quirky adventure, based on the classic Edward Lear poem, The Owl and the Pussycat.
The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat is a fun, colourful and easy to read book. It captures the minds of the children and held their attention. Abigail was intrigued with the pictures, where as the easy to read text allowed the older 2 to be able to read the book with ease.
The book is written in rhyme, the same as the well-known poem by Edward Lear – except it’s different in all aspects. The “owl” and the “pussycat” are in fact 2 fun-loving children dressed up, who set sail in a cardboard boat in their living room and by using their imagination they embark on some fun adventures which involves an eel dancing with a seal, a clownfish playing the flute, a puffin in a cap and many more fun characters.
Coral Rumble does well to encapsulate the minds of its readers with its fun story telling rhyme and adventures and the amazing illustration by Charlotte Cooke just pulls you in further – and makes for great discussions about more adventures that the Owl and the Pussycat could have!
