An utterly charming and gloriously illustrated re-imagining of Lear's The Owl and the Pussy-Cat. Hilary Knight uses all of his considerable talent to tell a story within a story: young Otto and Polly attend Professor Comfort's Story and Music Hour, where they slowly transform into the animals of the poem...and then back again in time for dinner. Colorful double-page spreads are filled with remarkable details that will keep the curious reader searching for more. And what on earth is a runcible spoon? In Fine condition in a Fine dust jacket.
