Synopses & Reviews
Three irrepressible little owls take us on their journey around the world, from one Christmas Day to the nextandmdash;fishing, dancing, snoozing and not behaving. Blakeandrsquo;s delightful drawings combine with fantastical rhyming text to create a story that begs to be read again and again. Three Little Owls was written by Italian artist Emanuele Luzzati and translated into English by John Yeoman.

andquot;Blakeand#39;s trademark artwork continues to delight...andquot;
A charming story of a n indomitable and appealingly offbeat woman who finds liberation and new friends out on the open road
