Little Owl’s Night by Divya Srinivasan (Viking, 2011) has a basic storyline, that of Little Owl enjoying the evening, watching his forest friends, and wondering why anyone would want to sleep through the beautiful night. He wants to see the sunrise so he can see if that’s any good too, but as his mother describes it to him, Little Owl falls fast asleep.

Little Owl’s Night has bright graphic design illustrations which Raisin and I enjoyed. I particularly enjoyed Owl’s big eyes that soaked in all the activity and beauty around him. It’s a nice twist on the bedtime story since for Owl, bedtime is sunrise.
