Three baby owls, Sarah, Percy and Bill, wake up one night in their hole in a tree to find that their mother has gone. So they sit on a branch and wait. Darkness gathers and the owls grow anxious, wondering when their mother will return. But, at last, she does, and they joyously welcome her home.

    Comments about Owl Babies:

    We use this big book in Kindy (children aged between 3-5 years)often as it is a beautiful story that young children can relate to. We often use puppets to help tell the story. The story is lovely and the illustrations exceptional. We also use it to start conversations about owls. Recently we have used it in class 'read'in Auslan sign language which the chidlren also enjoy.

    Waddell's stories treat the fears of the very small with wit and sensitivity ... Benson's pictures are outstanding. * The Independent on Sunday * Stories about home-alone baby animals don't come more appealing than this. * Daily Mail *
