Little Owl’s Bedtime

Karl Newson and Migy Blanco

(Nosy Crow)

‘Mouse is snoozing, Squirrel, too/ But Little Owl has work to do.’  Little Owl spreads her wings and ‘flies up past the moon’ over the nighttime sleeping fields toward the plains where Giraffe and Elephant sleep. Little Owl ‘huffs and puffs and blows‘ each star out, one by one.
Little Owl flies on, over Bear sleeping in his cave and Tiger on his mountain edge. At each turn she blows every star out for the night.
We trace Little Owl’s extraordinary journey from field to ocean, mountain and desert, racing to silence the stars ahead of the dawn. Bookwagon favourite Karl Newson (I Am a Tiger) rhymes and soars with the nighttime currents. Migy Blanco’s bold, warm pictures entrance.
‘Little Owl’s Bedtime‘ is a charming, entrancing bedtime story, certain to become a favourite, read, remembered and cherished.
