Product Description

Review

"The Little White Owl is a charming story which is beautifully illustrated about a lonely little white owl with got a big imagination, which he uses to win the friendship of the more colourful owls." - Space on the Bookshelf "This is probably one of my favourite stories, ever. EVER. Tracey Corderoy is such a brilliant storyteller, and this teaches us to accept others who are different, and that the most important thing is what's inside. A brilliant message for kids (and adults too), and the little white owl is the most adorable character ever." - The Very Hungry Reader --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This beautifully illustrated picture book tells the story of an orphaned white owl who lives all by himself in a cold snowy wonderland. One day he decides to go an adventure to a faraway land in the desert. Upon arriving he discovers a whole lot of other owls who are bright and of varying colours. The little white owl is a fantastic storyteller but upon his arrival the other owls are a bit standoffish with him. Not letting that get him down he starts to entice them into his imaginary world of dragons, magic and distant lands. Slowly they begin to receive him more warmly and they all open themselves up to this 'different' owl from a faraway place and his wonderful tales.

A lovely story which at one level has the potential to open up discussions with children about how we shouldn't judge others on outward appearances. Highly recommended.

This is SUCH a lovely story, in rhyme....a little sad at first!!(or is it me being too soft..haha),but all comes good. I would recommend to anyone with a toddler, as i find that my little boy learns the stories very quickly when they are in rhyme form, such as the Gruffalo aswell.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.....5 STARS

Format: Hardcover
My daughter picked this for her weekly library reading book, as she was drawn to the beautifully illustrated lone owl on the front cover. Oddly, this is different to the one shown here on amazon, which includes the colourful cast of characters within (see picture). Despite this discrepancy the illustrations are superb and the colours used on the glossy pages really aid in making the story come alive.

The tale relates the experience of a dreamy white owl who, armed with his alarm clock and toast, goes off to explore the endless skies and discovers a group of colourful owls. At first he is shunned because of his plain appearance and lack of colour, but this is all changed as they are beguiled by his wondrous stories and inner spirit which is far more colourful than they could ever have imagined.

The story is simple and short yet conveys a poignant moral message that 'celebrates difference and the beauty inside us all' which is appropriate for the 4-5 year age group at which it is aimed.

I used this story for an assembly/PSCHE lesson. The moral and illustrations are wonderful and promoted lots of discussion. Suitable for all primary age children - fabulous descriptive language.

This is a wonderful childrens story about a little owl who goes on a journey to find some friends of whom he can tell his wonderful stories to. After many days flying he finds a tropical place full of beautiful brightly coloured owls, but all is not what it first seems as the owls are not very friendly or talkative but with his wonderful charm the little white owl soon wins the owls round. Lovely colourful sparkly illustrations. I would recommend this and has been one of my little boys favourites!

This is a really thought-provoking book, making us all, adults and children alike, think about our inclination to judge others on their outward appearances. The Little White Owl may look plain and boring in comparison with his brightly coloured fellows, but he has the most wonderful fund of stories which amaze the other owls and, despite their initial resistance, they take him to their hearts. The story actually brought a tear to my eye at the end. The illustrations by Jane Chapman are fantastic - just look at all the owls huddled together on the tree - and can you believe the range of expressions on their faces? This would be a wonderful bedtime story to share with your child and would also be lovely to share with a class and as an assembly book.
