WOW! Said the Owl
Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books
Everyone knows that owls are nocturnal but one curious little owl decides to take a long nap at night so she can stay awake during the day.
What she sees, from the warm, pink glow of dawn through to a day filled with the bright colours of green leaves, blue sky, grey clouds and, finally, a stunning rainbow, makes her exclaim 'WOW!'.
But despite the beauty of the daytime world, the little owl decides that the night-time stars are the most beautiful of all.
Simple text and an endearing character experiencing colour for the first time give an original slant to a first colours book.
