Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Visions in Poetry is an innovative and award-winning series of classic poems re-interpreted for today's readers by outstanding contemporary artists in distinctively beautiful editions. The sixth Visions in Poetry book is The Owl and the Pussycat, a nonsense poem by Edward Lear, brilliantly illustrated by St?phane Jorisch. The artist's vision begins in a segregated world where different species never mix and everyone hides behind a mask. Against this backdrop an aristocratic owl from Owl Heights and a bohemian pussycat from the other side of the tracks find each other. They escape society's disapproval by sailing in their pea green boat to the land where the bong-tree grows, a utopia of mismatched creatures living together, their masks doffed for good. Jorisch's playful and fantastic interpretation, inspired in part by Lear's own illustrations as well as the films of Fellini, the art of Miro and The Beatles' Yellow Submarine, is a celebration of love and an exhilarating journey that takes us beyond the quirky charm of this favorite poem.

Synopsis:

In the fifth book in the Visions in Poetry series, award-winning illustrator Stephane Jorisch explores the nonsense world created by Edward Lear.

Synopsis:

Edward Lear's beloved poem has charmed readers since it was first published in 1871. Now the adventure of these two unlikely sweethearts has been paired with vibrant paper-collage illustrations by Anne Wilson. Her colorful art creates a whimsical backdrop for Owl's romantic pursuit of Pussycat. "The Owl and the Pussycat" will delight children and adults and show a new generation of readers the magic of true love. Awards and honors for "The Owl and the Pussycat": "Publishers Weekly" starred review
