When three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, they can't help but wonder where she is. Stunning illustrations capture the worried owls as they wait—and the joyous flapping and bouncing and dancing that greet her return.
New to board book format is Martin Waddell's Owl Babies, in which three worried owlets wait for their mother to return from her night flight. Patrick Benson's disarming cross-hatched pictures of fluffy, wide-eyed owl babies, and the use of light colored text against a black background, turn this sweet story into a hauntingly lovely little book.
