Little Owl by Phillip Gwynne

Little Owl is the age old story of a lost child in search of mother.

Gwynne uses a simple repetitive text as baby owl asks various forest animals

whooo? whooo? whooo am I?

The illustrations by Sandy Okalyi are bold and colourful acrylic paint on board.

They take us on a 24 hour journey through the Australian bush.
We see sugar gliders, bats, a koala, dragonflies, a cockatoo, emu, echidna & frog as little owl tries to find home.

Little Owl is a belonging and identity story.
It’s also a lovely example of Australian animals and their habitats to share with 2+ readers .
