Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The bay owls came out of their house,

and they sat on the tree and waited.

A big branch for Sarah, a small branch for Percy,

and an old piece of ivy for Bill.

When three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, they can't help but wonder where she is. Stunning illustrations from unique and striking perspectives capture the owls as they worry about their mother: What is she doing? When will she be back? What scary things move all around them? Not surprisingly, a joyous flapping and dancing and bouncing greets her return, lending a celebratory tone to the ending of this comforting tale. Never has the plight of young ones who miss their mother been so simply told or so beautifully rendered.

Synopsis:

Never has the plight of young ones who miss their mother been so simply told or so beautifully rendered as in this tale of three baby owls who awaken one night to find their mother gone. Where is she? When will she be back? What scary things move in the night around them? Stunning illustrations in full color.

About the Author

Martin Waddell wanted OWL BABIES to capture the "strong emotion of 'I want my mommy!' " that is so familiar to children. Martin Waddell is the author of more than one hundred books for young readers.

Patrick Benson enlarged his technique of cross-hatching for the illustrations of OWL BABIES so that it would have "a more graphic image—rather like a woodcut." Patrick Benson is also the illustrator of THE LITTLE BOAT by Kathy Henderson and LET THE LYNX COME IN by Jonathan London.

Amy BookGirl, October 21, 2014 (view all comments by Amy BookGirl)
I've read this story to my girls so many times I have it memorized, even though it's a bit lengthy. It tells a sweet, reassuring story about baby owls that wake up in their tree to find their mommy gone. They wait, and wonder, and worry, until she makes her happy return. Having it memorized comes in handy, it's like a little bottle of comfort medicine I can give my girls anytime they are feeling anxious. I just start, “Once there were three baby owls, Sarah, and Percy, and Bill…” and the tension in them just drifts away.
