A Bit Lost,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Bit Lost (Hardcover)
This is a very cute story, with lovely retro illustrations. A baby owl falls out of his nest and is found by a friendly squirrel, who tries to help him find his mother. Baby owl says she is very big, so owl takes her to a bear. But she has pointy ears, so he takes her to a rabbit, etc. My only criticism is that the story is very similar to Julia Donaldson's "Monkey Puzzle". However, saying that, my children found it very sweet and funny and they asked me to read it again, so it was a winner in our house. The book has a very nice feel to it, espcially when (having found mum), baby owl is sitting just a little close to the edge of the nest again when the story ends... It's quite humorous and quirky and I think it will appeal to children of about 2-5 years.
