A family of owls become neighbours with a family of bats ... just how will the night unfold?

From award-winning author and illustrator, Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, comes a stunning wordless board book that celebrates family, friendship and the power of togetherness. Mummy Owl and her three little owls live happily on their spacious branch.

That is, until the bat family move in. And the new neighbours (the owls up-top, the bats hanging below) can’t help but feel a little wary of one another.

Owls just don’t mix with bats and bats don’t mix with owls. But babies are curious little creatures and this curiosity, and a wild, stormy night, might just bring these two families together…

  • A board book edition of a beautiful silent story it's perfect for the very youngest children, who can understand the narrative events simply by reading the pictures.
  • There is a wealth of visual humour (every bat and owl expression conveys so much sentiment) and the dramatic night-time palette is stunning, with each scene gradually getting darker until the full moon rises in the final spread.
  • Incredibly universal the story conveys that there is nothing stronger than a mother’s love, and that children are intuitively kind and non-judgemental towards children different from themselves.
