Editorial reviews

Three little white owls perch outside their cozy nest, wishing Mother would come home. In Waddell's simple, repetitive, carefully fashioned text, each is unique: Sarah, the largest, makes comforting remarks; Percy seconds them, but doubtfully; while little Bill just keeps saying, "I want my mommy!" Owl Mother does come, of course: "WHAT'S ALL THE FUSS? You knew I'd come back." Benson's soft, wide-eyed birds - rendered in delicate pen strokes touched with gentle color that makes the dramatic, dark night seem appropriately awesome - are perfect stand-ins for wise little toddlers who also know Mom will turn up - but still can't help wondering.
