Lily is frightened when the midnight owl hoots during the night. But Granny isn't afraid.

She thinks the midnight owl sounds friendly.

Will Lily always be afraid of him?



A wonderful story about being brave and trying things.

Lily is scared by the noise that the Owl is making all night. She is sure it is saying “Who’s awake? Who? Whooo?”

Lily’s Dad and Granny Small try to tell her that he is a friendly old bird, but Lily is not convinced. She knows she shouldn't be scared of a bird, but she is!

Granny Small suggests that they go on an adventure and visit the midnight owl, but is Lily brave enough?

This is a lovely story for your younger girls about courage, bravery, relationships and about how, in their own special way, grandparents share and encourage us.
