The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark

By Jill Tomlinson, Paul Howard (Illus)

Synopsis

Plop, the Baby Barn Owl, is like every Barn Owl there ever was, except for one thing - he is afraid of the dark. Mrs Barn Owl sends him down from his nest-hole to ask about the dark and he meets a little boy waiting for the fireworks to begin, an old lady, a scout out camping, a man with a telescope and a black cat who takes him exploring.
