The Owl and the Pussy-cat was about to animals following in love, and they decided to take a trip in a ship on sea. During their trip they decide that they want to get married but they need a ring. So they meet a pig that had a ring on his nose and they ask for the ring. He gives them the ring and they get married and live happily ever after.
this story don't really relate to me, but is a really cute story. I would like to have this book in my classroom because it teaches children that love is every kind of color, race, shape and size.

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 five pound note.
