The Lovereading4Kids comment

Baby Owl loves reading stories. When he sits down to read his favourite story out loud he finds Tiny Chick wants to come and listen too. Soon all of Tiny chicks brothers and sisters and cousins want to listen as well! How can Baby Owl read to so many eager listeners? Luckily, help is at hand. Soon everyone is enjoying the story.


I'm Not Reading! by Jonathan Allen

Baby Owl is going to read his book. Then along comes Tiny Chick who would like to be read to. Tiny Chick invites some of his friends. And those friends invite their brothers and sisters and cousins. Soon Baby Owl cannot read because he is smothered in lots of tiny
chicks who all want a story. Fantastic fun with the irresistible Baby Owl.

The sixth title in the hugely successful Baby Owl series. The first in the series, I'm not Cute, was one of the very books Boxer published and went on to be a huge seller internationally.
