Little Owl's Night

Little Owl's Night is a story book by Divya Srinivas the author and illustrator based in Austin, Texas. Her work has appeared in New Yorker magazine, and she has worked for This American Life, They Might Be Giants, Sundance Channel, Sufjan Stevens, and Weird Al Yankovic.  

Little Owl's Night is her first book with delightful illustrations of owl with enormous eyes and other adorable animals. It's a perfect bedtime story book for a unique reading experience with your little one with a simple story and with the message that night is a delightful place.

It's evening in the forest and Little Owl wakes up from his day-long sleep to watch his friends enjoying the night. Hedgehog sniffs for mushrooms, Skunk nibbles at berries, Frog croaks, and Cricket sings. 

A full moon rises and Little Owl can't understand why anyone would want to miss it. Could the daytime be nearly as wonderful? Mama Owl begins to describe it to him, but as the sun comes up, Little Owl falls fast asleep.

With holidays close at hand, this picture book will be a great gift for a book lover. Get it from here.
