Snuggle down with this beautiful picture book and join Little Owl as she flies off on a magical, star-filled night. With beautiful illustrations throughout from the hugely talented Migy Blanco and rhyming verse by Karl Newson that rolls off the tongue, this is a special, calming book for bedtime.
While all the other animals sleep through the night, Little Owl has work to do - she needs to blow out the stars, one by one, to make way for morning. When her work is done, the sun finally rises to wake the animals from their slumbers . . . but for Little Owl, it's time for bed. Lilting rhyme and rhythm make this book perfect for settling children for a peaceful night's sleep, and stunning scenes show Little Owl flying all over the world. Little ones will love pointing out all the different animals!
