At night, when we are feeling tired and ready for bed, owls are just waking up. But this curious little owl decides to stay awake all day, instead of all night, and discovers a world bursting with colour! But when the night-time comes around again, the stars above her head are still the most beautiful of all.

WOW! Said the Owl is an engaging book about colours from Tim Hopgood, the winner of the Best Emerging Illustrator, Booktrust Early Years Award.
