A comforting story filled with gentle humour and Paul Howard's warm and soothing illustrations, Jill Tomlinson's The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark has been enjoyed for decades by children who want to snuggle down with a good read. Perfect for story-led play, children can re-enact the tale as they learn not to be afraid the dark. The cute soft toy can also be played with separately.
