I was initially drawn to Jan Brett’s artwork for it’s Ukrainian and Eastern European flavour, but I love the fact that she explores other cultures for different books. Poems like Lear’s “The Owl and the Pussycat” do not focus on specific tropes or use culture-specific language, so they are the perfect literary medium to pair with an experimental style, which Brett does in this instance by choosing to place the Owl and the Pussycat in a decidedly South American setting. Even though Brett moves away from her signature detailed-border style with this book I still found that the artwork tells of the couple’s journey across the ocean very effectively. She uses the frame of the ocean to give montages of sea-life and really pushes the boundaries of composition to give Lear’s simplistic poem more depth, picturing the Owl catching dinner in the ocean and the Pussycat’s insistent attitude that they marry. The story may not have the unique draw of Brett’s Ukrainian folktales, but it is a charming addition to her oeuvre none-the-less! ( )

I'm not sure I've ever seen an illustration of "The Owl and the Pussycat" that was awful -- they all tend toward the beautiful. The Jan Brett illustrations do not fail. ( )

I liked this book for two reasons. First, the bright and vivid illustrations enhance the story. The illustrations are extremely detailed and helps the audience follow along the pussycat and owl's romantic journey. Because the written text in the book does not go into much detail about the setting or the physical appearance of the characters, the illustrations help to enhance the story by providing a vivid drawing of these things. Each illustration has an extremely detailed backdrop, and has an obvious facial expression on each of the characters so the audience can follow along with the emotions in the story. I also liked this book because the language, while minimal, was descriptive with its few words. For example, the author writes, "The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat" (p.1). This descriptive language helps the audience envision the boat that the couple is taking out to sea. Because the book has few words, the author makes powerful decisions and uses descriptive language to help strengthen his book. The language is descriptive and works with the illustrations to create a story that is easy to visualize and follow along with. Overall, the big idea of this book is that true love will go to any lengths and will always be there for you. ( )

This is an illustrated edition of Edward Lear's The Owl and the Pussycat poem, in which the owl and cat fall in love and sail away into the sunset in search of happiness. I love Edward Lear's rhymes and nonsense stories, and the illustrations really fit well with the story and gave it new depth.
The theme or concept is love and simplicity. This is a great read-aloud for classrooms. The rhymes are easy and fun to say and the story is fast paced and engaging. ( )
