About The Book

Little Owl howls and howls. Everyone in the neighborhood—from the hedgehog and the crow to the squirrel, mole, and stag beetle—tries to comfort her. They rock her in a large cobweb. They give her a nut. But even the mole’s necklace of flowers does not calm her down. Could it be that she just needs a hug?

“Children are sure to love this cleverly crafted picture book.”—Through the Looking Glass Book Review

About The Illustrator

Philippe Goossens was born in Brussels, Belgium, where he still lives today.  Since completing his studies at the Institut Saint-Luc, Goossens has worked as a freelance illustrator, and for some time now has focused on books for children and young adults. At NorthSouth he is known above all as the illustrator of the Owl Howl books. The story of the howling owl chick is a NorthSouth classic. About his creative work he says, "When the crayon sets off on its great journey across the paper, the table vanishes, the walls disappear, and unexpected notes come in."
