Waterstones Says

An enchanting picture book for little ones branching out into longer stories, Tomlinson's tale of a little baby owl who finds darkness just a bit intimidating has been captivating children for generations with its mix of beautiful illustrations and encouraging messages, making it the perfect bedtime read.

A new illustrated picture book edition of the beloved classic children's story about overcoming fears.

Plop, the baby owl, is like every barn owl there ever was, except for one thing - he is afraid of the dark!

But the dark is brimming with excitement and magic. As Plop ventures into the night, he meets a boy who shows him fireworks, a black cat who takes him exploring, a girl who tells him about Father Christmas, among other surprising discoveries...

Filled with gentle humour and warm and soothing illustrations, The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark has been enjoyed for decades by parents and children who want to snuggle down with a good read!

Perfect for kids aged 2+.

“A brilliant, funny and happy story.”

I read this book to my son, then aged 5, and we've just read it again, now 6 and a half, and he loved it just as much the second time. It's a funny, touching, happy story of a little owl who doesn't... More
