How was Owl to sleep, with the bees buzzing, the crows creaking, the starlings chittering, the jays screaming -- and all the other inhabitants of the hollow tree pecking, calling or crunching? Owl tried to sleep, but it was impossible.

Review: Good-Night, Owl!

User Review  - Katy Bennett - Goodreads

Owl wants to sleep all day but his woodland friends are busy and noisy. Beautiful folkart-style illustrations compliment a fun animal-sounds story. Good for a read-along or storytime. Unusual animal sounds too. Read full review
