by Chris Haughton
From a debut author-illustrator What if a little owl fell from his nest? A reassuring story for the very young told with whimsy and simple, vibrant artwork.
Uh-oh Little Owl has fallen from his nest and landed with a whump on the ground. Now he is lost, and his mommy is nowhere to be seen With the earnest help of his new friend Squirrel, Little Owl goes in search of animals that fit his description of Mommy Owl. But while some are big (like a bear) or have pointy ears (like a bunny) or prominent eyes (like a frog), none of them have all the features that make up his mommy. Where could she be? A cast of adorable forest critters in neon-bright hues will engage little readers right up to the story s comforting, gently wry conclusion."
