Little Owl is lost. With the help of a well-meaning squirrel, the search for Mommy Owl encounters some humorous misunderstandings. The book concludes with a joyous reunion, celebratory cookies (yum!), and a wry joke. It's a great read aloud. When it first came out, I was struck by Haughton's graphic illustrations, a delightful trend in picture books that has flourished in the years since.

FIVE STARS! My 2 year old son absolutely LOVES this book!! We have read this book every night for months now and he knows the whole thing by heart and just wants it again and again!! :) Hence the reason I have gotten online today to find other books by this author.

My kids listened to story many times. Then they imitate the little owl to answer the questions of the rabbit with gestures lovely. Great book.

Little owl falls out of the nest and a helpful squirrel tries to find his mother, with amusing results. This is a great story to read -- or to tell with puppets and stuffed animals. Great storytime book.

Definitely trying out in Storytime. Love the graphic art and the twist on the "are you my mother" theme.

A short and simple story providing lots of preschool humour as Squirrel continually mismatches Little Owl with the wrong animal mothers.

I agree that this is an incredibly beautiful book. I could cover my walls in the gorgeous illustrations! My 2.5 year old also wants to read it again and again, but unfortunately the simplistic statements of this drive momma nutso to read again and again. This is a variation on the classic PD Eastman's "Are You My Mother?" only with even less language variation.

Super cute book! The illustrations are great and the story is fun. My 2.5 year old asked me to read this over and over.
