Owl or Pussycat?

by Michael Morpurgo and Polly Dunbar

When he lands a starring role in the school Christmas play of The Owl and the Pussycat, Michael is over the moon: he is going to be Owl!

When his best friend, Belinda, is then chosen to be Cat, Michael can’t believe his luck.

This gloriously heart-warming book for children is written by the great story-teller himself Michael Morpurgo and beautifully illustrated by award-winning Polly Dunbar who has created an ‘opening night at the theatre’ gatefold for the setting of Edward Lear’s original poem.

 But will it be all right on the night?

Find out in this true story of first love and first-night nerves!
