Owl Babies

author: Martin Waddell
illustrator: Patrick Benson

When three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, they can't help but wonder where she is. Beautifully nuanced illustrations capture the anxious owls as they worry about their mother: What is she doing? When will she be back? Not surprisingly, a joyous flapping and dancing and bouncing greets her return, ending this comforting tale with a sense of celebration.

“There aren’t many ‘baby books’ that convey this kind of emotional richness supported by a perfect artistic form.” — Washington Post Book World
