Oliver's Wood

What happens when a night owl stays up late? Sweet and lovely. Say whoo-hoo. Just when you’re going to sleep each night, Oliver the owl is waking up. When the moon and twinkly stars come out, he’s busy playing in the wood. As soon as dawn starts to light up the morning, it’s time for bed. But one night, Oliver stays up. What will the daytime world be like? Sue Hendra always makes us smile with her quirky stories. Now here’s a gorgeous, perfect-for-bedtime one.
