The story is about a young barn owl called Plop, who is afraid of the dark. The plot is divided into seven little stories. Each one is a satisfying tale in which Plop learns something new about the dark each night: dark is exciting, dark is kind, dark is fun, dark is necessary, dark is fascinating, dark is wonderful ... and dark is beautiful. Plop isn't convinced immediately, but by the seventh night he's looking at the dark through new eyes!
If you know a little someone who is afraid of the dark, then this CD will cure them in one week ... guaranteed! But this wonderful story does so much more: it shows a simple paradox of life: how different people can see the same thing in many different ways - none of them wrong; all of the right!
The story itself is ok but some of the sound effects can be a bit frightening for young children ( the story opens with a clock chiming rather spookily and blood curdling shrieks). If the story is to reassure children who are scared of the dark, then this doesnt get off to a good start. My three year old declared " I dont like this" soon after hearing the start as described.
all in all disappointing.
Now for the cd: it's a great addition, especially as it has not been shortened. As we had already purchased (several copies!) of the book (The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark) for our children we can now leave them to listen quietly to the story alone, while they look through the book. Although, I must admit to prefering to either read the story to them myself at bedtime, or sit with them and listen too. Not sure who really enjoys it more!
