Description

Three baby owls, Sarah, Percy and Bill, wake up one night in their hole in a tree to find that their mother has gone. So they sit on a branch and wait. Darkness gathers and the owls grow anxious, wondering when their mother will return. But, at last, she does, and they bounce up and down with joy, welcoming her home. Martin Waddell has won The Smarties Book Prize for "Can't You Sleep Little Bear?" in 1988. "Farmer Duck" was shortlisted for the Emil/Kurt Maschler Award in 1991, as was "The Hidden House" in 1990, having won the award in 1989 for "A Park in the Dark". "Rosies Babies" won the Best Book for Babies Award in 1990, and was also shortlisted for the 1991 Kate Greenaway Medal. Other titles include "The Tough Princess", "Let's Go Home", "Little Bear", "Amy Said", "Once There Were Giants", "We Love Them", "The Happy Hedgehog Band", "Squeak-A-Lot", "The Toymaker", "The Pig in the Pond" and "Sailor Bear".
