    "This is NOT by Maureen Lipman, but Bill Oddie"

    If you came here from Amazon and expected this to be the version by Maureen Lipman, because you clicked on the link from the Maureen Lipman version, this is not. The link from Amazon is wrong and you may waste your money if you proceed, I did! Very unimpressed.

    Story
    "Not as long as the others"

    We have enjoyed so many of Jill Tomlinsons books on long car journeys so we're looking forward to this one.
    It is a short book and is well padded out with songs and acting segments, so not like the others which are long stories.
    It might be the sort of thing you would listen to in a kids drama class.

    Still good though, well read, and the story is good. But short.

    Be aware that you are buying something a bit different and you will not be disappointed.

    Story
    "Keeps my toddler in bed for an extra 40 minutes!"
    Would you listen to The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark again? Why?

    Yes, we downloaded this for my two year old son, who is now very curious about owls. He listens to this over and over, and it can buy his tired parents an extra half-hour of sleep while he listens.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, the characters are interesting, and the story is engaging.


    Any additional comments?

    A good book to help little ones learn about new things - like flying in the dark.
