This beautiful gift box set includes the classic picture book and an adorable, soft and fuzzy plush toy of Plop, the baby barn owl.

The timeless picture book starring Plop, a beautiful baby barn owl: he is fat and fluffy, with big, round eyes and soft, downy feathers. In fact, Plop is perfect in almost every way, except for just ONE thing . . . Plop is afraid of the dark! And then one night he discovers that perhaps the dark isn't quite so scary and dangerous as he feared, as he learns to embrace the dark and its wonders.
A comforting story filled with gentle humour and Paul Howard's warm and soothing illustrations, Jill Tomlinson's The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark has been enjoyed for decades by children who want to snuggle down with a good read.
Perfect for story-led play, children can re-enact the tale as they learn not to be afraid the dark. The cute soft toy can also be played with separately.
Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. So she did! Jill Tomlinson's bestselling animal stories have been adored by children the world over for nearly four decades.
Paul Howard is an extraordinarily talented artist who has illustrated many award-winning books from authors such as Allan Ahlberg, Jeanne Willis and Michael Rosen which have delighted children and adults alike across the world.
