Old Hushwing has come to live in the barn near Billy’s house, and Billy loves to lie in bed at night listening to the owl out hunting for his supper.

Then one day, Billy’s parents tell him they are having a new baby. They need Billy’s bedroom for the baby, and so they are going to build a new room in the barn especially for Billy. Billy is very excited. But when the builders start work, Old Hushwing is disturbed and he flies away into danger. When Old Hushwing doesn’t return, Billy persuades his parents to build a small house in the barn especially for the owl, and in the spring Old Hushwing finally returns – accompanied by Mrs Hushwing!

From the Back Cover:

Old Hushwing has come to live in the barn near Billy's house, and Billy loves to lie in bed at night listening to the owl out hunting for his supper.

Then one day, Billy's parents tell him they are having a new baby.
They need Billy's bedroom for the baby and so they are going to build a new room in the barn especially for Billy. Billy is very excited. But when the builders start work, Old Hushwing is disturbed and he flies away into danger. Billy waits anxiously for Old Hushwing to come back to the barn. But will he ever return, and is there anything Billy can do to help?

This moving story of a young boy's compassion for a barn owl is beautifully written and illustrated.
