the owl who was afraid of the dark

20 Apr

20120530_The-Owl-Who-Was-Afraid-of-the-Dark-Play-at-Madinat-Theatremy favourite book from childhood, apart from Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl classics, was a book called “the owl that was afraid of the dark” by Jill Tomlinson..

it is an amazing story about a little owl, called plop, that doesn’t like the dark – which is relatively unheard of in the owling world ;p as owls are a nocturnal animal… everyday there is a series of events which slowly help Plop to become accustomed to the dark…

personally – if i had to pick a favourite bird – it would have to be an owl.. it is so beautiful and so majestic somehow.. although i have never seen one in person..

i would recommend this book for all young teenagers and the little ones – who can be read the story!

its brilliant!

i haven’t been able to find it for ages – but finally found it in Waterstones in London
