Publisher Comments:

From a debut author-illustrator — What if a little owl fell from his nest? A reassuring story for the very young told with whimsy and simple, vibrant artwork.

Uh-oh! Little Owl has fallen from his nest and landed with a whump on the ground. Now he is lost, and his mommy is nowhere to be seen! With the earnest help of his new friend Squirrel, Little Owl goes in search of animals that fit his description of Mommy Owl. But while some are big (like a bear) or have pointy ears (like a bunny) or prominent eyes (like a frog), none of them have all the features that make up his mommy. Where could she be?

A cast of adorable forest critters in neon-bright hues will engage little readers right up to the story's comforting, gently wry conclusion.

Review:

"By sticking to simple shapes and a bold palette, Haughton has created a debut that reads like a tattered old favorite. A single half-page shows Little Owl dozing off in his nest, then — once it's turned — bouncing softly to the forest floor. The animals who find Little Owl are flat, stylized creatures in jewel colors, but their eyes convey a wealth of feeling. Squirrel peers at Little Owl, his paws clasped in concern, his neck stretched out quizzically. 'My mommy is VERY BIG,' says Little Owl. 'Yes! Yes! I know! I know!' says Squirrel. 'Follow me.... Here she is. Here's your mommy.' Squirrel points to an enormous teal bear, staring befuddled at readers. A few more cases of mistaken identity ensue before locating Little Owl's mother (careful readers will have noticed her seeking out her progeny). With instinctive skill, Haughton uses spreads of the forest to establish atmosphere and set up jokes, then delivers punch lines with spot illustrations that zero in on the animals' dopey but lovable expressions. A promising first outing. Ages 2 — up. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

The colors and characters are inspired! Seeing Little Owl Lost for the first time, I wanted to find more work by the author and went to his website. I enjoyed reading his blog:

http://chrishaughton.com/

The story of how he created Little Owl Lost is pretty cool. This is the best children's book I've found recently (http://36pages.com/ is where I first saw the book reviewed, plus a short interview with the author).
