THE OWL WHO WAS AFRAID OF THE DARK

by | Read by Sophie Aldred

Children Ages 6+ • 30 min. • Unabridged • © 1968

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.
