Description

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.

Author Biography

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. So she did! Jill Tomlinson's animal stories are much-loved and have been bestselling children's books for nearly four decades. Paul Howard is an extraordinarily talented illustrator who has illustrated many award-winning books from authors such as Allan Ahlberg, Jeanne Willis and Michael Rosen, and has delighted children and reviewers across the world. Paul is probably best known as the illustrator of Jill Tomlinson's animal stories, which include The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark. Paul lives in Belfast with his wife, an award winning television producer, and three children. Writing and illustrating his own stories, Paul's authorial debut - Bugville - was published by Egmont in 2012.
