    " I love this poem. What I love even more in this particular book, are the illustrations. I've read this to both of my children, over and over and over. An all time classic and just gorgeous pictures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/12/2014

    " The traditional rhyme is given new life in this richly illustrated version. As always, the cat and the owl fall in love and are married as they sail around in their boat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor | 2/2/2014

    " The first book that Arthur (my infant son) loved and continues to love. We started reading this when he was 4 months old and now I have to hide it from him. If he sees it, we must sit down and read it at least one time through. Jan Brett's drawings of the Owl and his Pussycat love are fabulous. They sail through the Caribbean replete with coconut drinks, colorful plants and fish, and of course the Piggy-Wig who lives where the Bong Trees grow. . .words fail to describe. Oh, and speaking of fish, look closely along the bottom of each page to watch a second romance unfold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heath | 1/16/2014

    " Edward Lear's story -- and Jan Brett's illustrations -- make this board book sing. There are multiple layers of images, and the fish and seahorse pull the readers through the thick pages. One of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucinda | 12/30/2013

    " My copy of this book was in French, a gift to me when I was a very young girl. Even after translation it was hard to make sense of it as a child. I totally loved the sounds of the words and the improbability of it all. I still do. I reminds me of a recent trip to Hawaii. "

    " This book seems like one of a kind. It sounds old yet still a good read. Good to talk about how the English language has evolved over time. Sweet illustrations to go with a good story. "
