Here is our household’s latest owl-related score, a classic storybook for children by Yorkshire-born artist Pat Hutchins. As you can tell by the cover it has a very 70s aesthetic and this edition is an ex-library book so it had that clear polythene cover binding that libraries put on children’s books.
We bought it for our little two-year old but I must admit I am fascinated by it too. I was child of the 70s so it is a bit like a fuzzy memory brought to life and the binding just tops it off. It is a bit like a trip in the TARDIS just holding it.
Anyway, it’s all about an owl struggling to sleep while all the other animals make noise all day but come nightfall, he gets his revenge noisily.
