About the Author

Paul Howard is an extraordinarily talented illustrator who has illustrated many award-winning books from authors such as, Allan Ahlberg, Jeanne Willis and Michael Rosen, and has delighted children and reviewers across the world. Paul is probably best-known as the illustrator of Jill Tomlinson's animal stories which include the classic, The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark. Paul now lives in Belfast with his wife, an award winning television producer, and three children. Writing and illustrating his own stories, Paul's authorial debut - Bugville - was published by Egmont in 2012. 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 animal stories are much-loved and have been best-selling children's books for nearly four decades. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From AudioFile

What would you say to an owlet who is afraid of the dark? Would you tell him the dark is exciting, or fun, or beautiful? Each time that Plop, the young barn owl, announces his dislike for darkness to a forest friend, a reason to exchange his habits for more "owly" ones arises. Sophie Aldred is an animated Plop. Her voice rises and falls with determination or doubt, and squeaks with childlike enthusiasm as Plop makes each new discovery. Her clear and measured presentation underscores the story's repetition and offers time to savor the gentle teaching and love of this owl family.

I am now 13 years old, and I still listen to this classic tape when I have nightmares at night. When I was little I used to listen to it every single night. I listened to it so much that I almost broke it. If you are a parent looking for a good childhood book for your child I highly recommend it, from firsthand experience of being a child. Thanks

As a child I was terrified of the dark. It wasn't until I read this book that I realized there are lots of fun things to do after the lights go out. Plot is a baby barn owl, an unlikely canidate for being afraid of the dark. He is sent out by his mother to learn about the dark. Through seven different people, he learns that "dark is super." You will fall in love with Plot and so will your kids.

The CD in English IS abridged. We first discovered Plop on cassette, and it ran 1 hour. This CD runs 20 minutes. It remains a delightful, short bedtime story for my 6 year old who has it memorized, but it IS abridged. I still would love to locate a truly unabridged CD that has the detail of the cassette.

This classic book has a new version, just out, published by Mammoth. A shortened text and excellent picture book illustrations makes this a great young childrens book, for the newest generation for whom Plop is a national hero. (ISBN 0-7497-4178-3)
