As the owls travel around the world (essentially their migration) they visit Peru, Germany, China, Australia and other countries. The owls return home just in time for Christmas with a “jumbo-sized basket brimful of fine treats.”
Three Little Owls is quirky and crazy and cute (just picture a fish wearing a raincoat and holding an umbrella, cold and caught in a storm). It’s told in poem format, and is an excellent read-aloud book.
Originally created by Italian artist Emanuele Luzzati, Three Little Owls has been translated into English by John Yeoman, and illustrated by the wonderful Quentin Blake.
