Chris Haughton's heart warming story of a little lost owl is now in a gorgeous board book edition!

Little Owl must be more careful when he is sleeping ... Uh-oh! He has fallen from his nest, and with a bump he lands on the ground. Where is his mummy? With the earnest assistance of his new friend Squirrel, Little Owl sets off in search of her, and meets a sequence of other animals. Yet while one might have his mummy's BIG EYES, and another her POINTY EARS, they are simply not her. Chris Haughton's striking colour illustrations follow Little Owl on his quest. Which of his new friends will lead him back to his mummy?

Industry Reviews

A captivating debut from one of Booktrust's Best New Illustrators ... is exceptional for its endearing and expressive characterisation, distinctive stylised figures, and unusual palette of ochre, orange, purple, turquoise and indigo, like 1970s' curtains. It makes you smile. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times *
Earnest and witty in equal measure, tots will love the quirky illustrations. * Pregnancy & Parenting *

Gorgeous book!


My kids love this book. It's really cute and keeps them guessing which is a great page turner! Would also recommend George by the same author, which is another favourite of ours. Both books are very witty.



Great book for little ones


This was a hit with my 16 month old son who until recently was really only a fan of lift the flap books. Cute illustrations, story was easy for him to follow and provided opportunity for me to use interactive hand gestures (eg. my mummy has BIG EYES) which kept him engaged.

We love this book


My son loves all of this author's books, and this one is a great read. Trademark humour at the end, and easy for my toddler to follow along with. A joy to look at, and read.



A lovely read


My toddler loves this book!



Sweet read with great illustrations


This book is a favourite of my two year old, often read before bed. A sweet read.
