Book Description

Aug. 10 2010
From a debut author-illustrator! What if a little owl fell from his nest? A reassuring story for the very young told with whimsy and simple, vibrant artwork.

Uh-oh! Little Owl has fallen from his nest and landed with a whump on the ground. Now he is lost, and his mommy is nowhere to be seen! With the earnest help of his new friend Squirrel, Little Owl goes in search of animals that fit his description of Mommy Owl. But while some are big (like a bear) or have pointy ears (like a bunny) or prominent eyes (like a frog), none of them have all the features that make up his mommy. Where could she be? A cast of adorable forest critters in neon-bright hues will engage little readers right up to the story’s comforting, gently wry conclusion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Original UK edition preferred, great story July 14 2014
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great, and fun book for kids. Dec 13 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars laugh out loud funny Aug. 23 2010
By Amanda J. Horrigan - Published on Amazon.com
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple story beautifully told Sept. 23 2010
By J.Prather - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will Little Owl find his mommy? Oct. 23 2010
By Library Lady - Published on Amazon.com
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.

By carrinlena - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My niece is 3 years old and she had me read it 7 times in a row, She even started to memorize the words herself. SHe loved it!! SHe loves owls and it was an easy quick read. Especially when you are dealing with small children who do not have a long attention span and who love to hear it over and over again! Very happy she loved it so much! beyond what I expected..... It is also a very sturdy hard cover book. Beautifully illustrated.
