The Lovereading4Kids comment
This stunning new edition of Edward’s Lear’s classic story poem makes a handsome pair to Julia Donaldson’ The Further Adventures of The Owl and the Pussy-cat which is also illustrated by Charlotte Voake. Every familiar of Lear’s tender and comical rhyme is perfectly picked up in the illustrations: the pea-green boat; the honey and money; the Piggy-wig with the ring at the end of his nose. A glorious final spread shows the happy pair dancing contentedly by the light of the moon! Julia Donaldson, who wrote The Further Adventures of The Owl and the Pussy-cat provides an additional introduction. ~ Julia Eccleshare
