Synopsis

Fly by Night by June Crebbin

Once, at the edge of a wood, lived two owls, a mother owl and her young one, Blink. Every day, all day long, they slept. Every night, all night long, the mother owl flew and Blink waited. This is the story of a momentous event in the life of a young owl - his first flight. All day long he waits, with increasing impatience, as the sun rises then falls. He watches other creatures - butterflies and beetles - bustling in the sunshine and keeps asking Is it time yet? Then, at last, the sun sets and the moon appears and Blink's mother tells him it is time. Away he soars, high in the sky, over the wood, over the fields, over the railway and the sleeping city. It's his first flight, a fly-by-night. June Crebbin is the author of a number of books for children, including The Train Ride (also illustrated by Stephen Lambert), Danny's Duck and two volumes of verse, The Jungle Sale and The Dinosaur's Dinner . Stephen Lambert is the illustrator of The Magpie and the Star , What is the Sun? and The Train Ride .

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
