Product description

Poor Plop! Baby owls are meant to love darkness – but he’s terrified of it. How can he overcome his nerves and become a true night owl? Slowly, with the help of the other night creatures, he learns that dark is exciting, dark is gentle, dark is mysterious and dark is kind… This tried-and-tested classic has delighted generations of children. A wonderful look at the unseen side of things, and at all the positive things that night and dark can be, it awakens a curiosity about the world and an appreciation of nature. Cleverly turning a common fear into a source of wonder, it is also a tender and comical tale of facing fears and learning to fit in.
