Illustrated manuscript of ‘The Owl and the Pussy-cat’
© Frederick Warne & Co., 2007
'The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey
and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a £5 note.
The owl looked up to the stars above
And sang to a small guitar
"Oh dear sweet Pussy Oh Pussy my love!
What a beautiful Pussy you are you are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!"'
