STORY 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 :)
