& Taylor

Others can't resist telling Little Owl how simply adorable he is, which angers him because he wants to be strong, smart, brave, and fearsome, but lucky for him, his wise mother lets Little Owl know that he is everything he wants to be, and just a little bit adorable, too.

Yeah, I loved it. There are some picture books that a person would be willing to go to the mats for to get them on some Best Books lists. This is one of them. I’ll do whatever I can to let the world know that this THIS is a book well worth reading. A fluffy magnificent gift for any small child who happens to believe that they are a warrior at heart. Adorable.

Such a cute little story! Sounds just like a toddler would say when not being taken seriously by grounwups.

Baby Owl, we are told as it stares fiercely at the viewer, "decided to explore the woods". He's under the distinct impression that his appearance will allow him to walk about uninterrupted. Unfortunately, a rabbit (with aspirations towards kangaroohood, by the looks of it) gives the cutey a big big old hug and tells him, "You're so cute, Baby Owl... And so small". This doesn't go down very well. The now thoroughly irate owl denies the charges. "I am NOT cute! And I am not small". What is he then? “I am a huge and scary hunting machine with great big soft and silent wings”. But a fox sees the owl next and before you know it he too is petting and hugging the Baby Owl. Angrily Baby Owl cries, “I am a huge, sleek hunting machine with great big see-in-the-dark eyes”. When a squirrel does exactly the same thing Baby Owl can take it no more. He complains to his mother that everyone thinks he’s cute but he’s not. Jovially his mother agrees that he’s not cute at all. But this does not go down as well as it might. After considering a moment Baby Owl screams, “But I am cute!... I am! I AM!”. Which Mama interprets, rightly, as a sign that Baby Owl needs to go to bed. As she tucks him in she whispers, “You’re so cute, Baby Owl... For a huge, scary, sleek, sharp-eyed hunting machine, that is”. And Baby Owl is content.

Picture Book Readaloud: I'm Not Cute by Jonathan Allan

Baby Owl refuses to face facts. He is ADORABLE. And the fact that this is read with a British accent makes it all the better.
