There's an Owl in My Towel is a beautiful and engaging book for little ones from Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb, the creators of the bestselling The Paper Dolls and The Everywhere Bear . It's tricky to have breakfast when there's a mole in your bowl! Gentle humour abounds as one baby's every activity is thwarted by a variety of surprising animals. But who wouldn't be happy to find a ted in their bed? Featuring satisfyingly simple rhyming text and charming illustrations on fresh white backgrounds, this gorgeous board book is a perfect gift. With big flaps to lift and irresistible actions throughout, children are sure to delight in joining in. And that's not all, because there's an online song to enjoy too! Written and recorded by Julia Donaldson, the wonderful 'There's an Owl in My Towel' song is the perfect accompaniment to the book and sure to become a favourite sing-along tune.

Beautiful! We really enjoyed this book! Simple text and pictures accompanied by large lift the flaps making this a great book to share with toddlers. It has instantly become my daughters favourite book! Julia and Rebecca worked together on 'the paper dolls' and they complement each other beautifully. A really lovely book, we'd definitely recommend it

This is a nice book with big flaps that my daughter likes to open. However, I think it will be better when she’s a bit older and can do some of the actions to go with the song.

I had thought that my just-turned-three year-old would possibly be a bit past this book but she loved it. She absolutely loves a lift-the-flap book and this simple, rhyming book. She has started to sit and 'read' books by herself and those with few words means she finds it easier to remember the story to say it aloud. Julia Donaldson always writes such sweet words - another great one for the youngest kids.

Lovely lift the flap book by one of my favourite authors/illustrators. The flaps are large and sturdy which is good for my boisterous 2 year old - although being so large they do tend to get bent over quite easily. Lovely rhymes on each page with new and different animals to find/chase. Not too long, and with board pages a good one for her to flick through on her own.
