Book review: The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat

On 29th August 2013 I had the honour to attend the launch party for the new book by Puffin ‘The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat’ by Julia Donaldson.

further adventures of the owl and the pussycat

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.

The Edward Lear’s original tale in rhymes has been taken to another level! I would dare say that the ‘Further Adventures’ is even better than the original story.

And take a look how this story should be ‘told’ in this exclusive video showing Julia and her husband performing the poem in a very original way – a true lesson for every parent.

I bet this book will be high up in the list of the top 10 books being sold this Christmas 🙂
