Baby Owl doesn't want to be cute, he wants to be a hunting machine. When his mum agrees that he isn't cute he gets upset and insists "I AM!" She solves the problem by telling Baby Owl that he can be both cute and fearsome. With beautiful illustrations and a universal theme, this story is bound to delight.

“You're so cute Baby Owl!” say all the woodland animals. “I AM NOT CUTE!” replies Baby Owl. But then his mother agrees with him and Baby Owl is even more upset. This is a playtime, bedtime, anytime fun read for children and parents! A Bologna bestseller!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
