The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is one of the all time classics of young children’s fiction and this beautiful gift box set includes the picture book and an adorable true-to-character plush toy of Plop. A lovely, calming bedtime read with a wonderful uplifting finish. Perfect for story-led play, children can re-enact the tale as they learn like Plop, not to be afraid the dark.

Synopsis

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson

This is a timeless picture book starring Plop, a beautiful baby barn owl who is fat and fluffy, with big, round eyes and soft, downy feathers. Plop is afraid of the dark! And then one day he discovers that perhaps the dark isn't quite so scary and dangerous as he feared...Plop learns to embrace the dark and its wonders.

The soft toy can be played with separately.

About the Author

Jill Tomlinson

Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. So she did!

It did not come easily. Her first story, The Bus who went to Church, was rejected by sixteen publishers before it was accepted for a picture book. Several other picture books followed until she felt a need to stretch herself further. She wrote five short stories about a hen wanting to visit an aunt and her chicks, and Methuen thought that if she wrote another five stories on the same theme the book would fit well into their new ‘Read Aloud’ series.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
