Review of "The Owl and the Pussycat"

Review of
The Owl and the Pussycat

Five out of five stars
 This is a children’s book that has worn well over the decades in the sense that the images and the text will delight now just as much as when it was published in 1941. The images are crisp, colorful and extremely detailed. The text associated with each caption is four or five lines long, in general, lines two and four rhyme.
 The owl is courting the pussy-cat and they are both dressed in their finest, formal outfits with the owl in a suit and the pussy-cat in a flowered dress with bright, bowed bonnet. It is a love story, they are married by a turkey wearing a reverend’s collar. The last few pages contain single-page stories with one image and a short segment of rhyming text.
 The level of the book is that of the second or third grader. This is a book that will excite the very young listener when the book is read to them while they are viewing the images.
