Product description

Three 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 bounce up and down with joy, welcoming her home. Now young children can read the story and comfort this adorable baby owl while its mother is away. Presented in a delightful gift box, this board book and toy set make great value - the ideal gift for any young child.
