Plop is a fledgling barn owl, old enough to begin hunting for his own food, but afraid of the dark. His wise mother sends him to talk to a small boy, an old lady, a boy scout and others. Slowly he learns from them the joy of darkness.

About the Author:

Jill Tomlinson's gently instructive animal tales have been charming children for decades. Illustrator Paul Howard has collaborated on many books, including Bravest Ever Bear.

From AudioFile:

What would you say to an owlet who is afraid of the dark? Would you tell him the dark is exciting, or fun, or beautiful? Each time that Plop, the young barn owl, announces his dislike for darkness to a forest friend, a reason to exchange his habits for more "owly" ones arises. Sophie Aldred is an animated Plop. Her voice rises and falls with determination or doubt, and squeaks with childlike enthusiasm as Plop makes each new discovery. Her clear and measured presentation underscores the story's repetition and offers time to savor the gentle teaching and love of this owl family.
