Sarah, Percy, and Bill are owl babies. They wake up one night in their hole, and their mum is gone. They think she is out hunting ('all owls think a lot'), but they aren't happy. 'I want my mummy,' says Bill. They go outside and sit on three branches, but there are lots of noises, and it is very dark. So they decide to snuggle up on one branch. When mum arrives home she says 'What's all the fuss...you knew I'd come back'. 'I knew it,' said Sarah. 'And I knew it,' said Percy. 'I love my mummy!' said Bill. Quite simply stunning in visual impact as well as ideas.
