Jill Tomlinson, The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark

    A favourite of my 3 year old son. We have it in board and paperback versions, both published by Egmont. Note (especially if you once read this book as a child) that both are abridgements of the original, but the board book version is abridged more. Details such as the scout’s cocoa, Plop’s headbutting his dad, and the names of the stars are missing, and the dialogue has become more abrupt and hence less easy to read aloud as compared to the paperback.
