Review

Little Owl falls asleep in his (rather precarious) nest, falls onto the ground with a 'bump' and becomes 'a bit lost'. Squirrel comes to his rescue and helps him find his mummy. But it's not Bear, or Rabbit, but Frog who knows where she is!

Chris Haughton's gorgeous graphic illustrations in lovely muted colours are printed on matt paper. The expressive animals have lots of charm and are wonderfully contrasted with the tall wooded forests dwarfing the small animals.

Young children will love this retelling of a classic tale of a small animal looking for its mother, and want to hear the story all over again when Little Owl looks as though he'll fall off off his perch again on the last spread.
