Edward Lear’s foolishly fun classic about the unlikely romance between a pussycat and an owl is now a collectible Folk Tale Classic!
"A memorable version suitable for the youngest reader.” —Kirkus Reviews
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
So begins the unlikely love story of a cat and bird, who sail away together and are married on a remote island, their officiant a turkey, and their wedding ring a piece of jewelry from a pig's snout. The story of this silly couple has become an enduring classic, and is more charming than ever in this gift edition, now part of the Folk Tale Classics series.
