I'm Not Cute! (Baby Owl) Hardcover – May 6, 2014
From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K–When Rabbit, Fox, and Squirrel take turns hugging Baby Owl, gushing about his adorable features ad nauseum, the youngster grimaces and grumbles, insisting that hes a huge, sleek hunting machine with great big see-in-the-dark eyes. Mama Owl resolves the problem at bedtime when she pairs both compliments in an acceptable fashion. Similar in style to Sandra Boyntons work, Allens minimalist, black-outlined watercolors capture plenty of facial expressions. A fresh story line and (sorry, Baby Owl) cute cartoons make this a crowd-pleaser.–Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

PreS-K.Although more cartoonish than Eric Carle's Grouchy Ladybug (1977), this tale of a cranky owlet will have a similarly calming influence on nestlings of the human sort. In a brief text paired with big, very simple cartoons, a scowling, downy orange chick goes for a walk in the woods, and responds huffily to the cooing affection of passing animals; neither "cute" nor "small," it declares, "I am a huge and scary hunting machine with great big soft and silent wings." When Mama Owl enters at last, agreeing with this assessment, a tantrum ensues: "But I am cute! I am! I AM!" "You're tired," says Mama. "It's bedtime for you." Right on. Amused parents and children alike will readily acknowledge the authenticity of Baby Owl's behavior. John Peters
