Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS Up-While many library shelves are already populated by lush editions of Lear's classic poem, a fresh treatment of a time-proven favorite is always welcome. Wilson's mixed-media paintings sing with bright colors, and her abstract shapes capture the joy in Lear's nonsense. Like the experiences of the owl and the cat themselves, this edition is an exuberant celebration of the improbable in life-Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME

From Booklist

PreS-Gr.1. As a picture-book text, Lear's poem "The Owl and the Pussycat" works remarkably well, as many illustrators (and by extension, librarians and teachers) have discovered though a dozen or more editions. Wilson's artwork looks a bit quirkier and more modern than most, with a jaunty mix of colors and patterns pulled together in sweeping compositions on broad double-page spreads. Combining paper collage with painting and printing, the art creates a feeling of dreamlike spontaneity. The overall effect is fantastic, but then so is this charming nonsense poem to children hearing it for the first time. Libraries seeking new editions should consider this nontraditional interpretation. Carolyn Phelan

The story may be the same, but the artwork for this edition is outstanding. Better than any I've seen.
