Owl Babies Summary

Owl Babies by Martin Waddell

A gentle tale of three baby owls reassures young children that Mummy will always come home.

A gentle tale of three baby owls reassures young children that Mummy will always come home. Three baby owls, Sarah, Percy and Bill, wake up one night in their hole in a tree to find that their mother has gone. So they sit on a branch and wait... Darkness gathers and the owls grow anxious, wondering when their mother will return. But, at last, she does and they bounce up and down with joy, welcoming her home.

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 *
"This sweet tale is great for introducing the concept of emotions and feelings." * The Sun *
