When I was little I always liked finding a good place to read The Owl and the Pussy Cat out loud– usually the apple tree.


When I was little

maybe six or seven,

I would sit in our apple tree

reading The Owl and the Pussy Cat

to my sister’s





Now Julia Donaldson has written the further adventures of the owl and the pussycat in a story poem with beautiful illustrations by Charlotte Voake.

I have a copy of this book to give to a young poet who makes their own adventures for the owl and the pussy cat in a poem story. Think about all the tips I have given you on writing story poems. What kind of story will this be? Funny? Magical? Mysterious? Strange? Sad? Happy? Fascinating? Something else?
