The Owl And The Pussycat
The Owl and the Pussy-cat are in love and on an adventure across the sea! This wonderful storybook app combines Edward Lear’s timeless children’s poem with colorful illustrations and music to make a fun interactive experience for kids of all ages.
If your child has never heard Edward Lear’s classic nonsense poetry then this is the place to start! “The Owl And The Pussy-cat” is a fun poem that tells the story of two animals in love. The poem begins as they sail across the sea in a boat. The Owl sings a love song to the Pussy-cat and they decide to get married. They soon buy a ring from a “Piggy-wig” (a pig) they meet in the woods. They are then married by a Turkey and the story ends as the Owl and the Pussy-cat dance together by moonlight 🙂
