Description
01
This is the story of three baby owls who wake up one night in their hole in the tree to find that their mother has gone, so they sit on the branch and wait, wondering when she will return. At last she does, and they all bounce up and down with joy, welcoming her home.
02
It's bedtime, and Little Bear can't get to sleep. He's frightened of the dark, the dark all around, which not even Big Bear's largest lantern can light up. Big Bear finds a way to show Little Bear that there is no need to be afraid.

That cold winter's night,
beneath the star's light...

From the very first "GRRRRRR!" and "ROAR!" of the Super Hungry Dinosaur, kids will be rooting for Hal to save his parents and his dog, Billy, from the huge beast. And Hal saves them in the most unusual way (hint: It involves spaghetti) in this delightful twist on the tantrum story from well-loved and bestselling author Martin Waddell and debut illustrator Leonie Lord.

Acclaimed storyteller Martin Waddell returns with a warm winter's tale of three little bears who love to pretend - and a Mommy Bear who loves to play along.
"But where are my baby bears?" Mommy Bear asked.
"I don't know where we are," said the biggest snow bear.
When Mommy Bear comes to look for her baby bears, she finds three snow bears instead. They don't look quite like her bears, but they do like to slide down the snowy slope and throw snowballs, just like her bears do. . . . Little readers will love being in on the charming snow bear game, illustrated by Sarah Fox-Davies with all the crisp beauty of a snowy day.
