'Dark is wonderful . . .' Plop the baby Barn Owl is afraid of the dark. He's sure dark is nasty! Then Mrs Barn Owl sends him down from his nest-hole to ask about the dark, and he meets a little boy waiting for the fireworks to begin, an old lady, a scout out camping, a girl who tells him about Father Christmas, a man with a telescope and a black cat who takes him exploring. Is the dark all right after all? Filled with gentle humour and comfort, this classic of children's literature is beautifully illustrated by Paul Howard. 'A tiny gem' - Imogen Russell Williams, the Guardian Egmont Classics are books to treasure.
