Description: Plop, the Baby Barn Owl, is like every Barn Owl, except for one thing - he is afraid of the dark. 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, and a man with a telescope.
Synopsis: "Dark is exciting, Dark is kind, Dark is fun, Dark is necessary, Dark is fascinating, Dark is wonderful, Dark is beautiful, and Dark is of course SUPER!"A heart-warming classic full of animal antics by Jill Tomlinson.Plop, the Baby Barn Owl, is like every Barn Owl there ever was, except for one thing - he is afraid of the dark. "Dark is nasty" he says and so he won't go hunting with his parents. 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. He realizes that through these encounters that dark is super after all.Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades. Perfect for kids aged 5+ who love Julia Donaldson, and Dick King Smith's The Sheep Pig. This edition is beautifully illustrated by Paul Howard.Have you enjoyed all of Jill's animal stories?The Owl Who Was Afraid of the DarkThe Cat Who Wanted to Go HomeThe Gorilla Who Wanted to Grow UpThe Hen Who Wouldn't Give UpThe Otter Who Wanted to KnowThe Penguin Who Wanted to Find OutJill 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. So she did! Jill Tomlinson's animal stories are much-loved and have been best-selling children's books for nearly four decades.
