Thanks for the owl-ish recommendations. I loved Edward Lear when I was in college. Hey – I just did a blog post on some favorite Christmas books I read to my children growing up. I’d appreciate if you checked it out and added some of your own in a comment.
Thanks for your comments. I adore Edward Lear’s stuff and nonsense, too. I shall pop over and check out your recommendations, thank you! Jane
‘The Owl who was afraid of the Dark’ Jill Tomlinson is a lovely book too 🙂
I’ve just looked that one up – it does look lovely! i shall acquire a copy. Thanks so much for the recommendation. Jane
Can I also suggest Owl Babies by Martin Waddell, it’s a lovely little book.
yes you can! thank you. i do know this one – it’s fab – but am restricted by my own terms and conditions of my ‘fab four’ category.. 😦
