Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's not fair. All Little Owl wants is to go to bed at a reasonable hour, like his friends do. But no... Mama and Papa say little owls have to stay up late and play. So Little Owl spends all night jumping on his bed, playing on the jungle gym, and doing tricks on his skateboard, but he's hooting mad about it.

Children who have a hard time going to bed will love this fun twist on the universal dilemma.

Review:

"The team that pertly turned the eat-your-vegetables dilemma upside-down with Little Pea again puts reverse psychology to work, this time for the sake of bedtime. Like his legume counterpart, Little Owl has a great life — except for one thing: 'All my other friends get to go to bed so much earlier than me! Why do I always have to stay up and play? It's not fair!' This follow-up lacks the full-strength visual quirkiness of Little Pea: the peas' stripped-down roundedness (they were essentially a family of heads) made everything they did even funnier. The considerably more anthropomorphized owl family, on the other hand, feels recognizable, which blunts the comic impact of their bizarro worldview. Even so, this outing is not to be missed. Rosenthal and Krouse plant little gags throughout — when Little Hoot is seen at school, the lesson on the chalkboard reads 'who/ whom/ whose' — and they sustain the joke with such twisted-logic gems as this one from Papa Owl: 'I don't give a hoot what time your friends go to bed. In this family, we stay up late.' Ages 3-up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Parents too will find this droll switcheroo a hoot and a half." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Follow-up to Kit Chases popular and utterly charming debut, Olivers Tree, starring Lulu, Charlie, and Oliver 

The weather is stormy and Lulu is disappointed that she cant play outside, so she makes a special Rainy Day Treat and plans the perfect party for her friends Oliver and Charlie. But when its time to taste the creamy hot chocolate, they quickly realize something went very wrong. Lulu is devastated that her party is ruined, but with some quick-thinking, Charlie and Oliver figure out a delicious solution to save the day!

 

Kit Chase offers a sweet ode to friendship in this tale of three best friends who are always ready to use their imaginations and help each other out.

Synopsis:

Chikit-chikit-chik!

A squirrel is chittering. Bees are buzzing. The sun is high in the sky. And Little Owl is supposed to be asleep, but when he wakes up early, heand#8217;s just too curious to close his eyes again. The forest he knows so well at nighttime is completely different and#150; and exciting and#150; in the day!and#160;After watching butterflies dance, wolf pups play, and then his very first rainbow, Little Owl returns to his tree. He has many new stories for his mama.

A blue sky companion to Little Owland#8217;s Night, Little Owland#8217;s Day is just right for young children and the perfect introduction to the joy and wonder of the natural world.
