4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely illustrations
Beautifully illustrated in Quentin Blake's inimitable style. This tells the tale of 3 owls who dress up for Christmas, go fishing and travel the world all in the space of a year, before returning with a Christmas feast.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay.

This tells the tale of 3 owls who dress up for Christmas, go fishing and travel the world all in the space of a year, before returning with a Christmas feast. Told in nonsensical rhyme I think there are a couple of places where it suffers translation issues. I'm sure it will be popular for children and whilst I love the pictures, the story left me with more questions than answers - why did they lay eggs at Christmas and what happened to them, what's the relevance of a wardrobe, what's the bip and bop rhythm - just me being picky.
