Debi Gliori and Alison Brown, Little Owl’s Egg (2016)
I’m your baby owl. You don’t need a new one. Little Owl isn’t pleased to hear that there’s a baby owl in the egg Mummy has laid. So Mummy pretends it might be a baby penguin … or crocodile … or elephant. In the fun of imagining different kinds of siblings, Little Owl realises that a baby owl might just be the best thing of all.
A gentle, lovely story about the arrival of a new sibling, addressing fears that Mummy’s love will stop. Debi Gliori is a bestselling, award-winning author – writing for the first time for another illustrator: the talented Alison Brown.”
