Format: Board book
Rating reflects North American edition, five stars to the original version.

Great book, prefer the UK title/version although having both does allow us to switch up our readings. Not sure why the edits were needed; I liked the British flavour of the original.

Unfortunately our North American edition also has a typo on the word "mommy" in one spot. Too bad it wasn't proofed more carefully before printing. All in all, great story and eye-catching illustration.

A heartwarming story of a lost owl being reunited with it's Mom. My 20 month old daughter LOVES this book, and it's been one of her favourites for ages.

Great illustrations that are slightly eccentric and cool, as well as a fun, amusing story. My daughter is always perfectly happy to read this book.

laugh out loud funny Aug. 23 2010
By Amanda J. Horrigan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My son will be three this week. We go through LOTS of library books. Most are okay, and few are read for naptime AND bedtime in the same day. This is one of the special ones. I like it for its simple story and great pictures. He likes it for its hilarity. Little Owl falls out of his nest and is lost. Little Owl describes his mama as being "this big" to which squirrel helpfully replies, "yes, yes. I know" and takes him to a bear. Then Owl says his mama has "pointy ears". Again squirrel says, "yes, yes. I know, I know" and takes him to...a rabbit. Lastly they go to frog for the "big eyes". They eventually find mama and all go to the nest for cookies. Love it!

A simple story beautifully told Sept. 23 2010
By J.Prather - Published on
Format: Hardcover
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 collection.

i was drawn to this book for the artwork and beautiful colors--it considers a more sophisticated palate than usual kid-art fare. the story is simple and very sweet. currently reading it to my 6-month-old nightly.

Will Little Owl find his mommy? Oct. 23 2010
By Library Lady - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Irish illustrator Chris Haughton's debut picture book has reached the states with the title Little Owl Lost. Haughton uses a rich yet subtle color palette which is perfect for the tone of the story. The artwork will draw you in, but the simple story of a baby owl that fell out of his nest and lost his mommy will keep you turning the pages.

When baby owl falls asleep and tumbles out of his nest, squirrel finds him and helps him look for his mother. Little do they know that his mother is looking for him too!

It is a story that has been told before (Is Your Mama a Llama?, Are You My Mother?) yet the simple text and repeated lines make the story feel fresh, comforting, and just as touching. Little Owl Lost is an excellent addition to your collection, especially for toddler or preschool age children.

Kids and parents will enjoy the lovable Little Owl Nov. 8 2011
By Jennifer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Poor Little Owl fell out of his nest while sleeping. A squirrel sees him bounce along the forest floor and stops to check on him. Little Owl says that he's lost and asks where his mommy is. Filled with the best intentions the squirrel confidently states that he can find Little Owl's mommy, he simply needs to know what she looks like.

The super adorable owl holds his wings as far apart as possible and declares his mother "VERY BIG. Like THIS!" Clever squirrel knows just who his mother is and takes him directly to... a giant blue bear.

Little Owl says that not his mommy, his mommy has pointy ears on top of her head. The squirrel quickly takes him to... a very surprised rabbit. Little Owl keeps adding more descriptions but the squirrel never manages to find the right animal.

Oh my gosh! This book is so stinkin' cute! Kids will enjoy Squirrel's attempts to find the right mommy and will appreciate Little Owl's fear and relief. I've read this to several classes but it wasn't until the upteenth reading that I noticed a silhouette of Mommy owl hidden in the backgrounds. Once squirrel starts running around looking for the right mommy, have the kids start looking for mommy.

Kids and parents will enjoy the lovable Little Owl and Squirrel, the unflattering descriptions of his mother, and the funny little ending. Little Owl Lost would also make a great gift for younger children or mothers-to-be.
