Owl Babies

By Martin Waddell
Illustrated by Patrick Benson

A beautiful pop-up edition of the classic picture book.

Three baby owls, Sarah, Percy and Bill, wake up one night to find that their mother has gone. So they sit on a branch and watch and wait for their mother to return... Clever pop-ups bring this bestselling picture book to life – the owl babies slowly close their eyes and fall asleep, their mother swoops gracefully through the forest, and Sarah, Percy and Bill bounce up and down with joy when their mother comes home.

  • Over two million copies of Owl Babies sold worldwide.
  • The perfect gift.
