Description

A beautiful book and DVD edition of a bestselling modern classic, this is the story of three baby owls, Sarah, Percy and Bill, who wake one night to find their mother gone. And as the darkness gathers and they perch patiently on their branch waiting for her return, oh how they worry! What are those scary noises all around them? What is mum doing? When will she be back? Never has the plight of young ones who miss their mum been so sensitively told or so beautifully rendered as in this tale from picture book masters, Patrick Benson and Martin Waddell. Children will love snuggling up to watch the animated version of this charming tale from the acclaimed King Rollo Films - accompanied by specially composed music and narrated by Emilia Fox - and following all the action in the book. Please note this DVD is Region 2 PAL.
