From a debut author-illustrator! What if a little owl fell from his nest? A reassuring story for the very young told with whimsy and simple, vibrant artwork.

Uh-oh! Little Owl has fallen from his nest and landed with a whump on the ground. Now he is lost, and his mommy is nowhere to be seen! With the earnest help of his new friend Squirrel, Little Owl goes in search of animals that fit his description of Mommy Owl. But while some are big (like a bear) or have pointy ears (like a bunny) or prominent eyes (like a frog), none of them have all the features that make up his mommy. Where could she be? A cast of adorable forest critters in neon-bright hues will engage little readers right up to the story’s comforting, gently wry conclusion.

A simple story beautifully told This is a story that’s been told before, but perhaps never so beautifully and simply than in Little Owl Lost. The illustrations are basic and done in a color palette that is certainly unusual in kid’s books. The colors are muted and earthy and only add to the charm of this little owl’s search for his mother after he falls out of his nest. The picture of Little Owl tumbling out, accompanied by a simple UH OH is just priceless.Kids will enjoy following along with Owl as he keeps trying to describe his mother, only to keep getting pointed in the wrong direction. The story ends perfectly with a cookie party back at the nest, but wait a minute… That little owl is looking unsteady again! UH OH. The text is spare; just enough to keep things moving along and the attention of even the youngest squiggly kid in the audience. This is a solid recommend for both group and one on one sharing for any preschooler or kindergartner. It is a great choice for any permanent story time…
