Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Lorimer
It's nighttime in the forest, and everything is quiet. Until "‘Whooo's there?' said Old Owl. ‘Who said "eee eee eee eee"?' ‘I did,' said Cricket. ‘It's music to me.'" The irritated (yet adorable) owl flies around the forest, demanding to know what all the rumpus is. Fireflies glow, a cat hunts a rat, a raccoon rummages in a trash can, a dog chases the cat, a frog hops along, a skunk sprays, the rat continues to avoid the cat, a coyote howls, bats fly by, and the moon shines on everything. Eventually "a lullaby hush finds its way to the tree, where somebody's sleeping now Whooo can it be?" The cranky owl falls asleep as the sky becomes lighter. The illustrations are great. They are a bit cartoony, very appealing and amusing, and work perfectly with the text. This book would make a great bedtime story, or be a good addition to a classroom segment on forests or nighttime. Reviewer: Sara Lorimer
Kirkus Reviews
Standing guard over the forest, stern Old Owl serenades a progression of animals-among them, a hungry raccoon, a hopping frog and a smelly skunk-with the song, "Whooo's there?" Rendered in rich nocturnal hues with thick flowing lines and geometric forms, the animated, double-page spreads complement quatrains that are replete with alliteration and animal sound effects. Variety in both the pleasing rhymes and artwork-including intermittent visits from the moon and a cat-rat chase-will keep the pages turning. While the small format may disqualify it from group storytimes, this tranquil and engaging bedtime sojourn is just right for one-on-one sharing. (Picture book. 3-5)
