A while ago I reviewd an unusual, engaging book called Swankypants. by Diana Vickery. Well the new book from the magical worls of Swankypants has arrived and is called: A little owl called Hooty. It’s a very short read-it-all-in one-go book and a traditional picture book. The illustrations are just as rich and magical and the prose is a rhyming lilting read.
Hooty is a little owl who is scared to fly and just kind of waits for life to come to him (as well as supper!) Swankypants tries to encourage him but Hooty is too scared. In the end Hooty is encouraged to fly (I won’t spoil it) and we see him soaring.
It is a very simple little tale but the pictures are detailed and any Swankypants fans will love to see him back. My 3 year old really enjoyed this gentle little story.
