A heart-warming classic full of animal antics by Jill Tomlinson.
Plop, the Baby Barn Owl, is like every Barn Owl there ever was, except for one thing – he is afraid of the dark. "Dark is nasty" he says and so he won't go hunting with his parents. Mrs Barn Owl sends him down from his nest-hole to ask about the dark and he meets a little boy waiting for the fireworks to begin, an old lady, a scout out camping, a girl who tells him about Father Christmas, a man with a telescope and a black cat who takes him exploring. He realizes that through these encounters that dark is super after all.
Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson’s animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades. This edition of The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark is beautifully illustrated by Paul Howard.

We Was both disappointed at first because I didn't realise it was a "regular" black and white paper book with very little pictures...not what my daughter is use to but my daughter has loved it so far.
I Was planning to just going to read one chapter a night, however she's been asking for more, so night #2 we are already in chapter 4
She already said tonight "I like the dark"
So fingers crossed it's helping and working ;)
Great story, well written, easy and enjoyable to read..
It's great she's using her imagination well but she does keep turning the pages whilst I'm trying to read (tearing the pages) little annoying!!!
I am about to look for another version of the book with pictures

Perfect for sending them off to sleep at night!
