Early Reader book review : Twit, The Owl Who Wasn't Wise - Steve Cole

Pierre was very pleased to receive an Early Reader book to review by the hilarious Steve Cole, famous for (amongst others) his Astrosaurs and Cows In Action books. 

This book follows the adventures (and misadventures) of a lovely but rather dim-witted owl called Twit. His brothers love nothing more than setting him up and making him look foolish.

He eventually meets up with a kind-hearted vole called Norma who becomes his friend and decides to help him get his own back on his mean brothers. She has a lovely message for anyone who has ever been teased or bullied : "Everyone is a bit of a twit from time to time. But picking on people is a very twittish thing to do."

Juliette and Pierre giggled at all the silly antics but especially loved it when the underdog (or underowl ?!) came out on top. It's a fun read with an important life lesson for young readers.
