    " I really enjoyed this book. We were reading this book as an ending to our science lesson (light and dark). I think young children can really relate to the story as they may not like the dark and are afraid. The book shows how dark can be fun and how it can be related to different events such as Christmas. The book as beautiful illustration, I was not the only one who noticed this, as I was reading the book to children they noticed it too. Not forgetting I love the way how the author describes the different ways Plop lands. All the children in my class loved this book and had a good giggle when they heard the name. "

    " Delightful illustrations. Timeless. Slightly twee and predictable but enjoyable to read as an adult. Of course, it's not really aimed at grown-ups and this was adored by my 5yo boy, especially when we got to go EEEEK! "

    " An owl called 'plop' is afraid of the dark and is scared to go hunting with his parents. It is clear that this book may be better suited for a young age group as some children and this stage may be scared and nervous about the dark themselves.Plops mother sends him down form the trees to talk and gain other peoples perceptions of the dark. The feedback plop gains is positive and plop later leanrs in the end that the dark is not so scary afterall as the dark brings many fun and exciting things to do like (watching fireworks), which young children maybe able to relate to.

    " A good book for younger readers. A fun story with short chapters following the same style, using some repetition and descriptive writing of different areas of life. Ideal to introduce a child to some aspects of nature and how owls live and what they eat. "
