Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I want my mommy Three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, and they can't help but wonder where she is. What is she doing? When will she be back? What scary things move all around them? Stunning illustrations from striking perspectives capture the anxious little owls as they worry. Not surprisingly, joyous flapping and dancing and bouncing greet the mother's 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:

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

When three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, they cant help but wonder where she is. Stunning illustrations capture the worried owls as they wait—and the joyous flapping and bouncing and dancing that greet her return.

*A full-color paperback picture book

*A DVD inside the front flap, featuring a fully animated story

*A sheet of reusable stickers

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.
