Written by Martin Waddell

Illustrated by Patrick Benson

Part of the Walker Eireann Series

Ulchabhain Oga (Owl Babies) Synopsis

A beautifully translated Irish language edition of the perennial best seller Owl Babies. An ideal first foray into Gaeilge for the very young! Three baby owls, Sarah, Percy and Bill, wake up one night in their hole in a tree to find that their mother has gone. So they sit on a branch and wait... Darkness gathers and the owls grow anxious, wondering when their mother will return. But, at last, she does and they bounce up and down with joy, welcoming her home. This stunning title reassures little children that Mommy will always come home.
