A Piece of Passion from editor, Boxer Books The idea of owls and the dark, dark night has always been a magical one. Owls are known for being wise and watchful and there is something immediately peaceful and comforting about them, so when this text came in to Boxer it had immediate appeal. Not only did it have a gorgeous central owl character but it branched out (excuse the pun) to include the town, the country, those within the house and life that goes on around it. We loved the play on words, too – the noise the owl makes, Twit Twoo, often can sound like Twit-to-Who? And it was an ideal way to explore the night-time world. Sebastien Braun’s stunning watercolour illustrations really brought the text to life. It felt like the perfect combination.
A little owl says good night in his own special way to creatures and places at bedtime.
