The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-cat

The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-cat

Written by Julia Donaldson, Illustrated by Charlotte Voake
Published by Puffin 


 

The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-cat was actually published in August 2013, where Julia Donaldson created a lovely sequel that is respectful and an appropriate follow on from The Owl and the Pussy-cat.

This adventure follows the Owl and the Pussy-cat, who set off to travel far from the safety of the Bong-tree glade in search of the thief who has stolen their beautiful golden ring. Children will be sure to recognise the familiar characters and places from Lear’s classic poem in this delightful sequel.

 


 

Julia has done a great job in following the structure of the original poem, very Lear-like, and with Charlotte Voake’s adorable illustrations. I believe children and adults alike will enjoy this second book just as much as the first! 

 


 

This paperback edition even comes with the added bonus of a CD which includes two readings of the story by the author and a musical arrangement, performed by Julia and Malcolm Donaldson. A lovely gift for any age.

 


 

The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-cat is available to buy in all good bookshops and on the Puffin website. Watch out for my interview with Charlotte Voake coming soon!
