Chikit-chikit-chik!


A squirrel is chittering. Bees are buzzing. The sun is high in the sky. And Little Owl is supposed to be asleep, but when he wakes up early, he’s just too curious to close his eyes again. The forest he knows so well at nighttime is completely different – and exciting – in the day! After watching butterflies dance, wolf pups play, and then his very first rainbow, Little Owl returns to his tree. He has many new stories for his mama.

A blue sky companion to Little Owl’s Night, Little Owl’s Day is just right for young children and the perfect introduction to the joy and wonder of the natural world.

Divya Srinivasan is an illustrator and animator living in Austin, Texas. She is also the author-illustrator of Little Owl’s Night and Octopus Alone. View titles by Divya Srinivasan
Praise for LITTLE OWL'S DAY:

"Young readers will enjoy following Little Owl on his explorations, and this story, paired with Ashley Wolff’s Baby Bear Sees Blue (S. & S., 2012), can instill in them a sense of wonder at the natural world." —School Library Journal

"Srinivasan conveys the magic of a fantasy world that will delight very young children." —Kirkus

"This is a worthy companion to Little Owl’s Night (2011), and the bold, eye-catching artwork will work equally well with kids in groups or kids on laps." —Booklist

Praise for Divya's first book, LITTLE OWL’S NIGHT:
"This debut picture book gets it all just right. The story, while familiar, is executed deftly and with heart, and the crisp graphic elements of the artwork juxtapose well against the pretty prose." —Booklist, starred review

"The story's chief virtue is its graceful, balletic prose... It's a provocative inversion of the classic bedtime story, and a solid first outing. Srinivasan's message is that night is a delightful place, and that's useful knowledge for small children." —Publishers Weekly

"A graceful bedtime story celebrates the beauty found in night... Hold on to Little Owl's tail feathers and soar." —Kirkus 

"This exceptional first book by Srinivasan, a talented illustrator... follows Little Owl during his nighttime explorations... this bedtime tale may even convert children who are afraid of the dark into adventuresome night owls" —New York Times Book Review

"This is the most visually and verbally gorgeous picture book of the year... Simple, dazzling - and simply dazzling." —The Boston Globe
