The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-cat - a beautiful new story by Julia Donaldson Gruffalo author, Julia Donaldson, revisits Edward Lear's favourite rhyme in this wonderful new story set in a nonsensical land full of adventure.

When their beautiful golden ring is stolen, the Owl and the Pussy-cat must travel far from the safety of the Bong-tree glade as their search for the thief leads them across the Sea, to the Chankly Bore and beyond...

Full of enchanting lyricism this new rhyme, beautifully illustrated by Charlotte Voake, promises to be as important and successful as the original.
