I’m not cute!
Publisher: Boxer Books
Baby Owl is fed up. In fact, he’s furious. He sets off for a walk in the woods but kangaroo, fox and squirrel won’t leave him alone. They insist on picking him up, hugging him and telling him how cute he is. It’s too much! For Baby Owl doesn’t think he’s cute at all: he’s a sleek hunting machine with silent wings and huge see-in-the-dark eyes. Mum reassures Baby Owl: how can a sharp-eyed hunter be cute? But when Mum tells Baby Owl he’s not cute after all, he changes his mind…
This is an endearing, affectionate story about a cute fluffy little bird who wants to be big and fierce. Warm, expressive illustrations reveal Baby Owl’s changing emotions with empathy and humour.
