"Few children now have access to the open woodlands and grasslands
frequented by barn owls, but they can all enjoy the magic of the bird thanks to this lovely introduction." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A young girl and her grandfather look for a barn owl night after night. Will a distinctive heart-shaped face appear at the window? Michael Foreman's lush, intimate paintings are a perfect companion to Nicola Davies's lyrical text featuring intriguing facts about a rare bird indeed.
