    Wonderfully Whimsical ! Great Illustrations !

    This is a delightful visual twist on the original poem... There are lots of new things to discover in addition to the well loved characters. Thus, whether read aloud, read alone, or sung to little ones it is both a venture along well remembered paths of verse and an intriguing contemporary adventure !

    Gorgeous

    This book is beautifully illustrated. It brings new life to an old classic through its small touches. Note the seashells and flowers that change in the borders on each page.

    delightful!

    We love this book. We got it origanally from the library, but finally purchased our own copy. It's fun for us as parents to read, and it's fun for the family to look at. We could look at it again and again. The pictures are so beautiful, yet whimsical at the same time. Plus, as parents we love the sweet humor behind both words and pictures.

    classic

    everyone should know this by heart. It is easy. Everyone should also know what a Runcible spoon is. (Macys doesn't have it - or have a clue what it is.)

    There are many illustrated version of Edward Lear's The Owl and

    There are many illustrated version of Edward Lear's The Owl and the Pussycat -- some are so breathtakingly gorgeous but lack the silliness of this story, some are cartoony and have no depth, and some are so deep they tread some very disturbing waters -- so far, though, this is my favorite version.
    Jan Brett's illustrations, as always are colorful, well-rendered and quite lovely; and, as usual, somewhat jarring. That's what makes them so perfect for Edward Lear. Edward Lear's writings fall somewhere between Beatrix Potter and Hilaire Belloc. 
    On the surface, they are silly with a rhyming scheme pleasing to the ear. But scratch a little below that surface and there is something a little "off" in his work. All was not safe in Potter's world -- Peter Rabbit's father was turned into a stew -- but there was a happy ending for the protagonist. Reading Belloc can still give me nightmares. There is no safety in Lear's writing, no guarantee of a happy ending, but it is thought-inducing, not nightmare-inducing.

    The Owl and the Pussycat paperback book.

    I placed an order with B&N online for the Owl and the Pussycat
    calendar in June and still have not received it. I charged it on my
    credit card and had hoped to have received it by now as a gift for
    a birthday present in the middle of July. I am still waiting and hope
    that it will be here soon. Please let me know. Thank you.
