A witty cautionary tale from award-winning children's author Kes Gray.

Reviews

This book will encourage would-be readers because it is such good fun Carousel The illustrations are appealing with intriguing details Practical Professional Child Care Appealing Junior Mary McQuillan's enchanting illustrations are full of lovely details. The bold brush stokes and colour and the beautifully careful compositions are equally well suited to getting across the fluffy cuteness of the forest creatures and the harshness of Twoo Twit's uncomfortable night. The delightful pictures lift the story above its rather worthy message sufficiently to engage even more cynical young readers. Writeaway.org.uk Although a cautionary tale, Twoo twit is thoroughly enjoyable Write Away Twoo Twit is not a wise owl. And the reason why? He's a secret truant. It's not until his lack of education comes to light that he realizes there's a lot to be said for being a learned owl. An appealing tale of a cheeky errant owl who mends his ways. Junior
