Barbara Cooney «The owl and the pussy-cat»
“The Owl and the Pussycat” by Edward Lear is a favorite children’s poem of ours and this beautifully illustrated version by Jan Brett is a classic which should be in every home library. Brett’s gorgeous pictures jump off the page and take the reader into the poem. The illustrations are bright and colorful, captivating for children with a Caribbean-inspired theme. We have read books of “The Owl and the Pussycat” by other illustrators, but none holds a candle to Jan Brett.
