The magical and reassuring tale about baby barn owl Plop is a beloved children' s classic! 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+.
Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. Her animal stories have been bestselling children' s books for nearly four decades. Paul Howard has illustrated many award-winning books from authors such as Allan Ahlberg, Jeanne Willis and Michael Rosen, delighting children and reviewers across the world. Paul is probably best known as the illustrator of Jill Tomlinson' s animal stories. Paul lives with his family in Belfast.
