“Little Owl loves so much, and there is much to discover in the forest. The illustrations bring those discoveries right to you. I’m not sure I love mushrooms as much as Little Owl, but I do know I love to discover with Little Owl — so will you.”
— Carolyn Roys, Anderson's Bookshops, Naperville, IL
The star of Little Owl's Night returns to find love in his beloved nighttime forest.
"What do I love?" Little Owl thought.
There were so many things. . .
Gliding along on a quiet night, Little Owl looks for the things that make him happy--shimmering stars, winking fireflies, listening to the cricket song, and most of all, spending time with his good friends. Lyrical and deeply heartfelt, Little Owl's Love is perfect for Valentine's Day and is a love letter to the natural world on a child's level.

* "The writing is spare and evocative, and the art is striking. Against a night setting, the colors of the animals jump off the page in all their beauty. Children will love the characters and the beautifully illustrated story." --School Library Journal, starred review
