The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark


  • Plop, the Baby Barn Owl, is like every Barn Owl there ever was, except for one thing – he is afraid of the dark. “Dark is nasty” he says and so he won’t go hunting with his parents. Mrs Barn Owl sends him down from his nest-hole to ask about the dark and he meets a little boy waiting for the fireworks to begin, an old lady, a scout out camping, a girl who tells him about Father Christmas, a man with a telescope and a black cat who takes him exploring. He realizes that through these encounters that dark is super after all.

I thought this book was extremely good because it is about a barn owl called Plop who is scared of the dark and because of this fear he has he won't go hunting with his parents. His mother tells him to fly down to the people who live down on the ground to ask them about the dark and so he goes down and first, he talks to the little boy who is watching the fireworks. Then, Plop goes to and old lady who is part of the scouts. Finally, he goes to the little girl and she makes him realise that the dark is actually fun. In the end he goes hunting with his parents and he lives happily ever after.
