"Intensely expressive, humorous and touching" Guardian
Mummy Owl and her three little owls live happily on their spacious branch. That is, until the bat family move in. And the new neighbours (the owls up-top, the bats hanging below) can't help but feel a little wary of one another. Owls just don't mix with bats and bats don't mix with owls. But babies are curious little creatures and this curiosity, and a wild, stormy night, might just bring these two families together...
From award-winning author and illustrator, Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, comes a stunning wordless board book that celebrates family, friendship and the power of togetherness.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"This wonderful wordless picture book can be read in two ways, the right way up or upside down. [...] It will encourage thoughtful discussions between parents and young children. A celebration of tolerance, cooperation and friendship between these unlikely neighbours." * The School Librarian * "A stunning, unique picture book about friendship and family, which demonstrates that strangers can become true friends. The delightful illustrations keep the story flowing from page to page without the need for words. [...] a story four our times as millions are on the move." * Carousel * "This funny picture series got mum thinking about immigration, integration, sharing space and how often the young lead the way." * Families First * Full of wit and warmth, this is a joyful wordless picture book. * Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading * "If you buy one board-book for a tiny tot this season, make it this beauty by an award winning Irish picturebook-maker. [...] There are no words in this book, the expressive illustrations, full of gentle humour, tell the story. If you're looking for something a little different, this is for you." * Independent online, Ireland *
