About this item

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.
