September 2013 Picture Book of the Month

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.


The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat by Julia Donaldson

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.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
