A tender tale to remind the youngest of children that Mommy always comes back. "I want my mommy!" Three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, and they can’t help but wonder where she is. What is she doing? When will she be back? What scary things move all around them? Stunning illustrations from striking perspectives capture the anxious little owls as they worry. Not surprisingly, joyous flapping and dancing and bouncing…

I did not have high expectations for this book given the title, but I was pleasantly surprised. I liked how they gave the three owl babies distinct personalities. Sarah is the oldest child and leader of the babies. Percy is the middle child and an agreeable follower of Sarah. Bill repeats the same phrase throughout the book ("I want my mommy!"), which is what you'd expect of the youngest baby owl.
