Although a cautionary tale, Twoo twit is thoroughly enjoyable * Write Away *
Mary McQuillan's enchanting illustrations are full of lovely details. The bold brush stokes and colour and the beautifully careful compositions are equally well suited to getting across the fluffy cuteness of the forest creatures and the harshness of Twoo Twit's uncomfortable night. The delightful pictures lift the story above its rather worthy message sufficiently to engage even more cynical young readers. * Writeaway.org.uk *
Twoo Twit is not a wise owl. And the reason why? He's a secret truant. It's not until his lack of education comes to light that he realizes there's a lot to be said for being a learned owl. An appealing tale of a cheeky errant owl who mends his ways. * Junior *
