The Lovereading comment:
Shortlisted for the Best Pre-School Award, Early Year Awards 2009
Owl decides to wake up during the day and sleep at night. A very odd thing for an owl to do. But he discovers the world of colour and he’s in awe. A really lovely and original picture book.
SynopsisWOW Said the Owl by Tim Hopgood
At night, when we are feeling tired and ready for bed, owls are just waking up. But one curious little owl decides to stay awake all day, instead of all night, and discovers a world bursting with color! Yet when the night-time comes around again, the stars above her head are still the most beautiful of all.
ReviewsJust the right blend of vivid illustration and engaging text. --

The enchanting owl, waking up as night falls, gives a beautiful introduction to colours in Wow!

A Dog Called Rod is a wonderful fantasy about owning a dog even though dad says dogs are noisy, messy and expensive!
