The Adventures Owl and The pussycat Book Review
We recently got to review this lovely book which I am so glad as we love books. We love to sit and read together as a family or just some one to one time with one of the children. The Adventure of the Owl and the Pussycat by Coral Rumble and Illustrated by Charlotte Cooke is based on the childhood Rhyme we all know and love but is so much more than that, Its an adventure and ride around the imagination and a general joy to read.
One of the things we loved the most especially Ami who is only 14 months was the little details on the pages, from a naughty seagull with glasses on or a cheeky crabs. We love a book where we can all get involved and with there only being a few lines on each page Pants was very confidant reading it. Pants loved the way the writing was on the page and the pictures, he too found great joy in finishing something different on the pages.
Pants favorite part was the poster on the cave about the naughty seagull. he liked that it said pooing he laughed for ages once he spotted it, and we kept on wanting to go back to that page! Ami's favorite part was a ball and bird which she took delight in going back to the same page to spot the ball!
After we finished the book Pants realised that it was all about using your imagination, he wants to build a boat and go sailing around the living room, sadly it was bedtime and that can be saved for a rainy day. Thats always good to see that he took in what the book was about, we loved the book and you will too so grab a copy from Amazon you will not be disappointed.
