The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson


Poor little Plop! Being an owl who hates the dark is extra-tricky, you see, because owls hunt for food at night. Fortunately, his mommy shows him all the magical things that only happen at night: fireworks, star-gazing, visits from Father Christmas, and more. Maybe the dark isn't so bad after all.
