The Lovereading4Kids comment

In their best-loved original adventure the Owl and the Pussy-Cat danced happily on the edge of the sand after their wedding. Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson now gives them an entertaining and original new adventure which also includes characters from the original such as the Dong with the luminous nose and the Pobble who has no toes. Charlotte Voake’s illustrations capture to invention of Edward Lear’s original creation as well as Julia Donaldson’s creative contemporary additions. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-Cat by Julia Donaldson

Gruffalo author, Julia Donaldson, revisits Edward Lear's favourite rhyme in this wonderful new story set in a nonsensical land full of adventure. When their beautiful golden ring is stolen, the Owl and the Pussy-cat must travel far from the safety of the Bong-tree glade as their search for the thief leads them across the Sea, to the Chankly Bore and beyond...

Full of enchanting lyricism this new rhyme, beautifully illustrated by Charlotte Voake, promises to be as important and successful as the original.
