Little Owl loves doing sums, eating ice-cream, and riding his scooter. These are some of his favourite things. He has his favourite colours, too. And orange isn't one of them. So when Mummy knits a scarf as a surprise Little Owl knows that he definitely doesn't like it. It's itchy, long, and far too orange. After losing his scarf at the zoo, Mummy realizes that perhaps Little Owl should be involved in the choice and creation of a replacement. Her instincts are proved absolutely right. But whatever did happen to the orange scarf? Its fate is hinted at in this deftly-told humorous tale! A warm and witty yarn from the creator of Small Bunny's Blue Blanket, praised by The Telegraph as 'deceptively simple and decidedly sweet'

Worked well at toddler time

This is one very understanding and kind mother. Little Owl doesn't like his new scarf, so he loses it on purpose, rather than get mad, his mother decides to make a new one with his help. The pictures and colours are first rate, and for the most part the story is cute. But the message is, on the one hand good (a mother should be kind to her child and should work together), but on the other hand bad (if a child doesn't like a present, they don't need to be grateful and they can purposefully lose it, therefore getting a better present). The positives outweigh the negative messages in the end though.
