    This is an adorable and funny story about a fiercely independent, stubborn, and somewhat indecisive little baby owl who doesn t want everyone to tell him he s cute, but still wants to be cute after all It reminds me of my three year old Our girls enjoyed this one immensely and my three year old read it to herself again after we finished.

    It s about a little owl that wants to explore the woods but is repeatedly disturbed by inhabitants of the forest.The owl is perceived by rabbit, fox and squirrel as a cute, fluffy and adorable owl However, the owl doesn t want to be perceived this way He wants to be seen as a much stronger and a sleek hunting machine He becomes quite frustrated, about how the animals see him and confides in his mother She agrees with him and just then after a thought baby owl switches his mind and instead It s about a little owl that wants to explore the woods but is repeatedly disturbed by inhabitants of the forest.The owl is perceived by rabbit, fox and squirrel as a cute, fluffy and adorable owl However, the owl doesn t want to be perceived this way He wants to be seen as a much stronger and a sleek hunting machine He becomes quite frustrated, about how the animals see him and confides in his mother She agrees with him and just then after a thought baby owl switches his mind and instead does want to be a cute and cuddly owl and falls asleep Although this was a fun, simple read and enjoyable to be read to, I couldn t see a particularly exciting storyline, or a particular message conveyed The ending for me was quite quick and somewhat, abrupt In essence, the owl wanting to be something that he wasn t, then suddenly after thinking about it, deciding that he did want to be who he was, and THAT was pretty much it Having said this, it will always be memorable to me and my son enjoyed reading it many many times
