I had this memorized when I was a kid!

"The owl and the pussycat went to sea,
in a beautiful pea green boat.
The packed some honey and plenty of money,
wrapped up in a five-pound note."

Awww, sweet memories!

I love that last pic. Look how tenderly the owl is holding her! : ) My mom would recite this poem to me when I was little! : )

I have a copy of that exact book, but it's in French. Such sweet art!
Thank you for always sharing such lovely vintage goodness.
