In this bedtime picture book, Owl wakes up to start his activities just as the rest of the world is going to sleep

A gentle touch and a lyrical voice are the features of Paul's first book. She tells a simple story, starting at twilight, when a little girl and her younger brother are at the dinner table with their parents. Their old dog comes into the house to eat from his bowl. Outside a rabbit is nibbling on a lettuce leaf; a robin is feeding her nestlings. Then everyone, except the owl in the tree, settles down to sleep. The owl awakens and calls his "Who-oo Who-oo" before he swoops through the air to catch his meal and survey his dark domain. In the morning, when the people are up and doing and the other creatures are busy, the owl settles back on its perch to sleep the day away. Utterly beautiful watercolor scenes in Stock's envied style enhance the dreamy, hushed feelings that bedtime storytellers and listeners want.

PreSchool-Grade 2 This chronicle of dusk-to-dawn activities of an owl is framed and dotted with the evening and morning activities of a human family, a nest of robins and a rabbit. Opaque full-color illustrations are over-sketched in black line to suggest rather than delineate shape. A page of simple text in the present tense and a small vignette or picture of a single animal face a full-page illustration, reflecting the leisurely and lyrical telling of this everyday story. While no major event happens in this story, it is a cozy catalog of nighttime activity that would make a good addition to the bedtime story collection. Susan Hepler, formerly at Ohio State University, Columbus
