A comforting classic now comes with a cute owl toy to remind the youngest of children that Mommy always comes back.
"I want my mommy!" Three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, and they can’t help but wonder where she is. What is she doing? When will she be back? What scary things move all around them? Martin Waddell’s tender text and Patrick Benson’s stunning illustrations capture the anxious little owls as they worry - and the joyous flapping, dancing, and bouncing that greet their mother’s return. Now little readers will be bouncing themselves when they see the fluffy white baby owl they can play with long after the book is closed!
