What's Little Owl's Egg About

Publisher Summary

A heart-warming board book about preparing for the arrival of a new sibling, from a bestselling author and illustrator pairing. Little Owl’s mommy has laid a beautiful egg with a new baby owl inside, and Little Owl isn’t pleased. He’s her baby owl—she doesn’t need a new one! But what if it’s not an owl inside the egg? What if it’s a baby penguin . . . or a crocodile . . . or a dragon?! It’s fun to imagine, but maybe a baby owl is the best thing after all. Master storyteller Debi Gliori explores the feelings involved in the impending arrival of a new sibling in this sweetly silly and heartwarming story, lovingly illustrated by bestselling artist Alison Brown.

Who Illustrated Little Owl's Egg

Alison Brown

I grew up in Bangor, Northern Ireland and moved to England for art college in Liverpool, then London. I did a lot of formal studying, and learned a huge amount during that time, but I think my path towards a career in picture books began with my love of comics and cartoons, particularly “Peanuts”, the creation of my hero, the great Charles M. Schulz. ​ Before I became a full-time illustrator and writer, I did many other jobs including teaching English, working in a bookshop and designing Christmas and Halloween signage for supermarkets! ​ I work with publishers in the UK and around the world including Bloomsbury, Simon & Schuster, Little Tiger Press, Oxford University Press and Hinkler. ​ My books have been published in Spanish (Castillian and Catalan), German, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, French, Finnish, Romanian, Afrikaans, Portuguese, Italian and this year, for the first time, in Scots Gaelic, Welsh and Hebrew!
