In this lyrical story about two baby owls impatient to grow up, stunning collage paintings perfectly capture the warmth and energy of the irresistible babies as they stretch and grow and prepare to test their wings.

Good Luck Baby Owls by Giles Milton, Alexandra Milton

Frost-coated silence, a chill winter's night. All is quiet in the big dark barn. All is quiet except for a squeak. A squeakity-squeak in the big dark barn. Daddy, Daddy, Daddy! squeak two baby owls. Please, Daddy, please, can we learn how to fly?
