‘Dark is wonderful . . .’

Plop the baby Barn Owl is afraid of the dark. He’s sure dark is nasty! Then Mrs Barn Owl sends him down from his nest-hole to ask about the dark, and he meets a little boy waiting for the fireworks to begin, an old lady, a scout out camping, a girl who tells him about Father Christmas, a man with a telescope and a black cat who takes him exploring. Is Plop a night bird after all?

Filled with gentle humour and comfort, this classic  of children’s literature is beautifully illustrated by Paul Howard.

‘a tiny gem’ – Imogen Russell Williams, the Guardian
