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.

Pat Hutchins has written a bedtime story with a switch; a surprise ending that will send the youngest child off to sleep laughing.

Ack! Sorry, but I *cannot* endorse a book that teaches payback, that condones revenge. I like the 'backyard bird' theme in the art, but the message of the book is *bad.* Read full review

Owl is trying to sleep but all these birds keep coming to his tree making a new noise. The text is very simple, with an onomatopoeia for each bird. Young children will like the repetition/pattern of it. Great addition for an owls/birds unit for Pre-K/Kinder kids! Read full review
