Saturday 12th May marked the 200th birthday of Edward Lear, the man who created the wonderful and fantastical lyrics of The Owl and the Pussycat. To celebrate the special occasion, we at Templar are holding a creative Lear inspired competition! Create your own limericks and drawings inspired by Edward Lear and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title 'Edward Lear competition'. One lucky winner will win a signed copy of our The Owl and the Pussycat illustrated by Robert Ingpen.
'The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat...'
