    DescriptionThree 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 joyously welcome her home.

    Review text
    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.
