I enjoyed reading this book to my baby son. We both smiled at the soothing music offered on each page, which added a layer of magic and ceremony to bedtime. It also brought the story to life as the owls move from creature to creature playing them music to help them get to sleep.
The baby was particularly enamoured with the small cut outs in the hard pages which he could peer, poke and wonder at and were a great added touch for young readers.
The story itself is charming, particularly if you like woodland animals and the book would appeal to most pre-schoolers as a regular (even nightly) bed time read.
The reason it received 4, rather than 5, stars is because one of the tunes didn't work, which was a real shame. It would be a perfect new baby gift, but I would worry about buying it for someone because of this fault.
