In the Sea Library

“The Owl and the Pussycat” is written by Edward Lear in 1871, illustrated by Jan Brett and published as a board book by Puffin Books in 1996

“Owl sets out to woo Pussycat in a boat laden with fruit from their Caribbean island and with a guitar at his side, ready for serenading.
 
As they sail off across the sea, another story unfolds in the water beneath the boat. One by one, exotic sea creatures swim into the picture and small yellow fish seems to be looking for someone.
 
Jan Brett brings the magic of the Caribbean to her exquisitely detailed illustrations of Edward Lear’s charming poem.

“The Owl and the Pussycat” was first published in 1871 as a nonsense poem by Edward Lear who wrote it for a three-year-old girl.”
