Description - Owl Babies by Martin Waddell

A big book edition of Martin Waddell and Patrick Benson's classic, reassuring tale of three loveable little owls home alone.

A beautiful big book edition of a bestselling modern classic - perfect for sharing in the classroom - this is the story of three baby owls, Sarah, Percy and Bill, who wake one night to find their mother gone. And as the darkness gathers and they perch patiently on their branch waiting for her return, oh how they worry! What are those scary noises all around them? What is mum doing? When will she be back? Never has the plight of young ones who miss their mum been so sensitively told or so beautifully rendered as in this tale from picture book masters, Patrick Benson and Martin Waddell.
