Uh-oh! The little owl has fallen out of his nest. Where is mom now? Squirrel will help you, but then Owl must give the correct clues. Eventually, luckily, it will be all right, with a nice cookie!
A small owl is already falling from the nest on the soft bottom of the forest. Squirrel wants to help him find his mother. The directions of the owl are limited and so they come to a wrong mommy several times. Meanwhile, mom is also looking for. Finish well, even if the funny end is a surprise. The illustrations, in muted colors, are sleek and sober and made in a digital collage-like technique, with simple shapes and stylized figures. The prints have more to offer than at first sight: panoramic images of the forest, the phased fall of the owl, the squirrel and the owl, the hidden silhouettes of some animals, mama incluis. The flat figures are still alive by a strong body language and the position of the eyes. The composition is well thought out. The alternation of discs with white background for the dialogues and colorful summary slides for the action, gives dynamics to the story. The striking, angular letter is alternately printed in white or green. A funny, nice picture book, selected as the Picture Book of the year 2012. This edition is square and is made of thin, solid matte cardboard with two rounded corners. From about 4 years.
