"Edward is a bossy little boy who likes to make up funny words. He lives on a cliff above the ocean with his cat named Grace, whom he pushes around once too often. When she takes off for points unknown with a seafaring owl named Tex, Edward follows to win her back. When Grace and Tex are captured by the Turkey Who Lives on the Hill, the Dragonfly, Grasshopper, Butter-fly, Beetle and Bee get a message to Edward. But will Edward save Grace and discover a hard truth about love? Find out in this delightful, fast-paced children's play based on the life and work of Victorian poet Edward Lear. Written in simple poetry, limericks and rhymes, it contains adaptation of folk songs from America, Britain, Ireland and Wales."--Publisher's website.

From Edward Lear’s “The Owl and the Pussycat”to David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, owls have been woven into the fabric of popular culture. At times they are depicted as dignified, wise old scholars and at other times as foreboding voyeurs who see all and interrogate with an accusatory, “Who? Who?” In Owl best-selling author Desmond Morris explores the natural and cultural history of these predators of the night who embody both good and evil in turn. In this fascinating book, Morris describes the evolution, the many species, and the wide spread of owls across the globe. Owls are found on every land mass around the world, with the exception of Antarctica; and as a result of their wide distribution, owls appear in the folktales, myths, and legends of many native peoples—in addition to popular art, film, and literature worldwide. Featuring over 100 telling illustrations from nature and culture, Owl will appeal to the numerous fans of this enigmatic bird, from the friendly Mr. Owls to silent, sinister, hunters of the dark.
