Blog Tour: The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat by Coral Rumble & Charlotte Cooke

My sister Emily’s back again today for another children’s book blog tour! I was excited about this book myself. Did you ever read the Edward Lear poem, The Owl and the Pussycat, when you were a kid? We loved it – I remember we even had an audio recording of it!

This book, The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat by Carol Rumble and illustrated by Charlotte Cooke, is an adorable adaptation of the classic poem. To make it even cuter, the book was sent with a little packet of bee-friendly wildflower seeds for the garden!
