A gentle tale of three baby owls reassures every child that Mommy will always come home."The bay owls came out of their house,and they sat on the tree and waited.A big branch for Sarah, a small branch for Percy,and an old piece of ivy for Bill."When three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, they can't help but wonder where she is. Stunning illustrations from unique and striking perspectives capture the owls as they worry about their mother: What is she doing? When will she be back? What scary things move all around them?

Sarah, Percy and Bill are three owl babies. One night they awake to find their mother gone. They stay awake and await her return. After a while when she doesn't return, they get a little worried. What a cute book. I enjoyed it. The owl babies were very cute.
Simply beautiful pictures! I've never read this to a two-year-old, but I bet that after they got over being scared by it (like Are You My Mother? scared me at that age) they would love it, for its memorable words and expressive pictures and reassuring message.
The babies awake and mother is gone; will she return? Of course she will, for this is one of those quietly reassuring picture books that children and parents love.
The owl babies pictures are very cute, other than that, I don't remember anything about it.
