A charming, reassuring book for any child who has ever worried about Mummy leaving them alone, Owl Babies is a beautifully illustrated and exquisitely executed picture book to warm the cockles of the heart.
As three adorable Owl chicks sit on a branch in the woods their fears and concerns become very real as they worry that their mum may not return. The striking, dark yet somehow comforting illustrations cleverly enhance their mood as they sit, waiting and thinking, until finally all is well again. Enchanting, divinely different and ultimately reassuring, Owl Babies is a dream of a book. (Ages 2 to 5) --Susan Harrison

Touchingly beautiful ... Drawn with exquisite delicacy ... The perfect picture book. * The Guardian * Stories about home-alone baby animals don't come more appealing than this. * Daily Mail * A perfect bedtime story. * The Irish Times * Waddell's stories treat the fears of the very small with wit and sensitivity ... Benson's pictures are outstanding. * The Independent on Sunday * Clever paper engineering. I love the way the baby owls' eyes move and the impressive pop up owl and her three flapping youngsters. Celebrating 21 years of this well-loved tale, this is a charming book for the very young -- Caroline Franklin * Newbury News Weekly * This beautiful board book edition is perfect for little hands. * Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading *See all Product description
