What the Critics Say

"Eric Idle, a former member of Monty Python's Flying Circus, adapts Edward Lear's poems and drawings into a delightful retelling of the tale of "The Owl and the Pussycat." Filled with jokes for adults and children alike, this is a delight to the ear. Idle exuberantly performs a dozen different silly voices, sings at least as many silly songs, and has the tone just right." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "A charming tale with funny songs; a total delight."

    Eric Idle's telling of the story of the Owl and the Pussycat, who set to sea in a pea-green boat, is marvellous. It takes the poem as its basis and spins it into a wonderful adventure involving the Fire Lord, the magical Bong Tree (that walks and talks), and, of course the Pig with a ring in his nose!

    There are songs interspersed within the story (I particularly like the one about shopping), and which add to the whole story beautifully, and Eric Idle reads delightfully. As a member of Monty Python, he brings his wit to the narration and his sense of fun, not to mention his ability to create fantastic voices for the characters.

    Adults and children alike will love this audiobook about the Owl and the Pussycat, two brave friends whose adventure will become a favourite, and deserves to be a classic.

    "Fun"
    Would you listen to The Quite Remarkable Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat again? Why?

    Eric Idle is very talented and has made this a very fun story with little songs to go with it.
