For this poetry to still stand the test of time means people are still striving to find places to love safely The peagreen boat on the ocean was safe in the time of Edward Lear In the art of Stephane Jordisch, a small ship with a few just tolerant others might serve, and Paris the city of lovers also seems to serve Paris cafe scene depicted on cover, so I am not giving anything away, promise Many forms of adult human love are waiting for acceptance Mayfind it. This was a fun little nursery rhyme with beautiful artwork Jan does not use her famous panels on the side, but we do see the Owl in the Pussycat in the boat most of the story and you can always see the two of them in the boat and then everything that is happening in the water with all the sea life It creates a sense of wonder The Owl and the Pussycat are going to get married and it s the story of how they go about it I would rather find a different ring than they found The nephew thought th This was a fun little nursery rhyme with beautiful artwork Jan does not use her famous panels on the side, but we do see the Owl in the Pussycat in the boat most of the story and you can always see the two of them in the boat and then everything that is happening in the water with all the sea life It creates a sense of wonder The Owl and the Pussycat are going to get married and it s the story of how they go about it I would rather find a different ring than they found The nephew thought this book was funny He asked, why would a cat want to marry an owl That s weird He thought the story was funny and weird He thought buying the ring out of the pigs nose was rather gross and funny too He thought this story was odd, so he gave it 4 stars When a story is short I enjoy acquainting its authors, artists, and origin I had never heard of The Owl And The Pussycat , nor of Edward Lear His inspiration for this odd titular pairing is as whimsical, as it is an enlightening explanation for quite a suite of factors that of course, are nonsense Small birds are prey to cats, owls can carry small cats, and animals do not marry ceremoniously never mind mingling species It is a treat to learn from whence this came I obtained it recently i When a story is short I enjoy acquainting its authors, artists, and origin I had never heard of The Owl And The Pussycat , nor of Edward Lear His inspiration for this odd titular pairing is as whimsical, as it is an enlightening explanation for quite a suite of factors that of course, are nonsense Small birds are prey to cats, owls can carry small cats, and animals do not marry ceremoniously never mind mingling species It is a treat to learn from whence this came I obtained it recently in a country thrift store, as a 1984 Canadian retelling by Canadian artist, Ron Berg.The nice thing about retellings is clueing our modern generations into poetry and stories from all the way back in 1871 It seems Edward was well known, with a fun and educational bent Our poem was published in a compilation entitledNonsense, Songs, Stories, Botany, And AlphabetsHe composed the poem for a friend s 3 year old daughter which justifies an emphasis on cute rhymes and images instead of science I imagine reading this with a lilt Ron is from Toronto and has a graceful, pretty, fancy style suited to his concept He imagined this tale as a romance set on a cruise ship I get the impression the owl and pussycat are an established couple who made this trip together, because they marry on an island after they disembark As a matter of fact, they must have made quite a trustworthy boat rental with regard for their nautical ability, because they row themselves the rest of the way to the ship s destination It is lovely that the ship catches up shortly and the passengers are their wedding guests There is a plentiful banquet in a lush jungle Ron s elegant, dreamlike tableaux make up for the bizarre subject
