The Owl and the Pussy-cat Adventures

I remember The Owl and the Pussy-cat from my own childhood and loved it.  I remember reading this book night after night with such affection.  I loved it so much and read it so often I could recite the story from memory!  In fact, I remember ending up singing it, and found I still do!!  So when I received The Owl and the Pussy-cat and The further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-cat books to review, I was thrilled.  I was also a bit ashamed that I didn't know these two wonderful characters had gone on further adventures!

 We have been reading both books at bedtime and granted not every night but on the nights my boy wants to read them, these books always bring on discussions and chats.  The illustrations are fantastic, the pictures tell the story as well as the wording itself.  Each page contains enough wording to hold his attention and, like I mentioned discussion.  We are still at the stage of talking about the pictures and what has just be read rather then reading the whole story itself.

With the further adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat I did have some reservations to start with.  Would it be any good?  Would it be written in the same quirky way as the first?  Yes.  It is well written and picks up where the first book finishes perfectly.  I loved the story, Max liked the story but I don't know if it will become one of his favourites but he is quite fascinated with the fact the characters are animals.

Below is a lovely video of Julia Donaldson reading from The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-cat



For anyone who loves The Owl and the Pussy-cat then the further adventures is definitely worth a read and a chance to fall in love with these to beautiful characters all over again.  The books retail at £7.69 and £5.99 on Amazon, and I'm sure these will become classics in our home once more.
