The Owl and the Pussycat Illustrated by Barbara Cooney

Hello friends, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. How about we start our week with the lovely The Owl and the Pussycat illustrations by Barbara Cooney first published by Little Brown & Co. 1969. 

I really like the simple illustrations created with dark flowing lines that are brought to life with the interesting color palette of green, lime, white and aqua blue. We are all familiar with the story/poem of this odd couple (blogged here) which I find fun to re-read with different illustration styles by talented artists such as Barbara Cooney. Do you have a favorite illustrator of the book?
