Have you ever wondered why the Owl and the Pussycat set sail in their legendary pea green boat? What were they leaving behind? And did they dance by the light of the moon forever?
Quirkily illustrated to match the humour in the poems, this new edition of Lear’s most famous nonsense poem is accompanied by a prequel and a sequel, exploring what might have led up to and resulted from the famous wedding on the sand. Although not a fairy tale ending, you’ll find that Owl did pursue a musical career and their happy-ever-after encompasses yet more enchanting characters such as the Whiskery Walrus and a turtle, called Ted.
Matt Black and illustrated by Pip Hall. Paperback, 200 x 200 mm, 48 pages, June 2014.
