'With beautiful illustration by the hugely successful Migy Blanco and a rhyming text by Karl Newson that rolls off the tongue, this book follows little owl on a magical, shooting star filled day (or should we say night). As all the other animals settle down to sleep, little owl swoops around the sky, blowing the stars out so it’s all dark, until the sun arrives and it’s morning… but for one little owl it’s time for bed.'

There is a constellation in the night sky called the Owl Cluster (or NGC 457). It's just beyond naked-eye visibility, but is easily seen with binoculars or a telescope. Here it is... A real-life Little Owl!
