Illustration by Stéphane Jorisch

The Owl and the Pussycat is the sixth in the series of Visions in Poetry book, a poem by Edward Lear. The artist’s vision begins in a segregated world where different species never mix and everyone hides behind a mask. An owl from Owl Heights and a bohemian pussycat from the other side of the tracks find each other and fall in love. I heart these illustrations by Stéphane Jorisch of the The Owl and The Pussycat poetry book. This book was the winner of the 2008 Governor General's Award for Children's Literature for its brilliant illustrations. It's available at Barnes & Noble, if you are interested in grabbing a copy.

The illustrations are beautiful! I wish my daughters were younger- I would have snatched it up for them.
