The Lovereading4Kids comment

Hilda Offen is so good at creating characters, both animal and human that children can really empathise with and in this one, the Howlett owls and the Honeybell family are no exception.

Synopsis

Trouble With Owls by Hilda Offen

The Howlett owls are fascinated by the Honeybell family. They can't take their eyes off them. Unfortunately, the Honeybells have had enough of their nosey neighbours and decide to get rid of them. Only Michael understands how special their feathered friends are and hatches a plan to please everyone.

About the Author

Hilda Offen
Hilda Offen was born in Surrey and lived for the first part of her life on an entirely self-sufficient small-holding. She attended Reigate School of Art for three years and, when she had saved enough money by working for a printing firm, she became a freelance illustrator and worked for magazines and newspapers. She then did an English degree at University College, London which she enjoyed very much. She illustrated many collections of Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Stories and wrote her first book RITA THE RESCUER. She followed this with two others, OLD WILLIAM AND THE SEVENTH SHEEP and MRS. LAMPKINS LODGER. She then started writing and illustrating her own books and has so far written nine. She works at home, but does some teaching in colleges which she values as it gives her a chance to keep in touch with the children she is writing for. She believes that "any book for children should be capable of firing the imagination." Hilda Offen lives in Sussex.

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.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
