The Owl and the Pussycat
by Edward Lear
illustrated by Anne Mortimer


In this beautifully illustrated edition of the beloved nonsense poem by Edward Lear, Anne Mortimer takes the reader on the delightful voyage of the Owl and the Pussycat as they sail across the sea and travel into lush jungles, all by the light of the moon. Filled with rich detail and breathtaking artwork, this is a glowing tribute to the power of true love.

“This delightfully charming creation does, indeed, ‘dance by the light of the moon.’” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

Circle borders frame some vignettes, and narrow bands of white space around most of the pages add pleasing variety to the layout. A charming presentation.—from School Library Journal.
