Oliver's Wood by Sue Hendra

Oliver loves playing in the woods at night ... but what happens when he discovers daytime? When the moon and the twinkly stars come out at night, Oliver the owl knows it is time to wake up. He loves to play in the wood with the spiky hedgehogs, the stripy badgers and the batty bats. But one night he stays up late and, for the first time, sees the round, warm, orange sun. Oliver races off to show his friends, but in the day-time the wood is full of strange creatures he doesn't know. He waits until night-time and, reunited with his friends, amazes them all with the tale of his incredible discovery.
