Three irrepressible little owls take us on their journey around the world, from one Christmas Day to the next—fishing, dancing, snoozing and not behaving. Blake’s delightful drawings combine with fantastical rhyming text to create a story that begs to be read again and again. Three Little Owls was written by Italian artist Emanuele Luzzati and translated into English by John Yeoman.

He was nominated for Academy Awards for two of his short films, La gazza ladra (The Thieving Magpie) and Pulcinella.John Yeoman was for many years the head of the English department at the French Lycée in London. He has often collaborated with Quentin Blake.From School Library Journal:
K-Gr 2—Reminiscent of the work of Edward Lear, this nonsense poem, translated from the original Italian, is a silly and enjoyable read-aloud. It has a flowing rhythm and scans perfectly, and the repeated refrain, "With a bop and a bip and a bip and a bop/A wardrobe with three little owls on the top," is fun to read. The tale covers from one Christmas to another and tells of the escapades of three young birds with a penchant for adventure. They play dress up, go fishing in a barrel, travel the world (having breakfast in England and tea in China), and return with a wonderful surprise for everyone. Blake's whimsical pen and ink and watercolor pictures are filled with color and movement as the three silly birds perform their antics. It's a hoot.—Maryann H.
