Owl sets out to woo Pussycat in a boat laden with fruit from their Caribbean island, and with a guitar at his side, ready for serenading. Pussycat sits looking elegant and demure, waiting to be courted.

As they sail off across the sea, another story unfolds in the clear water beneath the boat. One by one, exotic sea creatures swim into the picture, and a small yellow fish seems to be looking for someone.

Famed Illustrator Jan Brett brings the magic of the Caribbean to her exquisitely detailed illustrations of Edward Lear’s charming poem. Flowers and straw patterns set against tropical skies above and fascinating underwater seascapes below adorn each wonderful spread.
