It’s night time when Baby Owl sets off for a walk in the woods. Of course he’s not scared! After all, owls always go out at night. But there are lots of creatures around in the wood at night…Maybe Baby Owl is just a tiny bit scared? Luckily, Dad is never far away and he knows exactly how to make Baby Owl safe.

A Piece of Passion from David Bennett, Publisher, Boxer Books

Jonathan Allen won't mind me saying that I'm not Cute! had been turned down by a number of major publishers. He agreed to develop the book further with Boxer and it went to the Bologna bookfair - international rights were sold, auctions held in the US and sales of over a million followed. Baby Owl is one of the reasons Boxer Books began to publish. I'm not Scared! soon followed and was just as big a hit! We've just published the sixth title, I'm not Reading.


I'm Not Scared by Jonathan Allen
