Tiny Owl listens to the noises of the farmyard at night and imagines that there is a snaggle toothed monster and hairy chinned guts-gobbler lurking in the dark. Tiny Owl on the Ramshackle Farm explores children's common night time fears. This delightful, humorous tale shows readers that the scary sounds Tiny Owl hears are in fact being made by the farmyard animals as they sleep. At the end of the story Tiny Owl's parents wake and reassure him that the night is nothing to be feared, instead they show him that it is the perfect time for owls to hunt and play!
Tiny Owl on the Ramshackle Farm is Lotte Wotherspoon's latest venture that comes hot on the heels of her 2015 publication Pukeko Dancing on the Old Dirt Track. Following the success of Pukeko Dancing on the Old Dirt Track, Wotherspoon delivers another jaunty rhyming story with a recognisable New Zealand landscape captured in her stunning hand drawn illustrations.
