Plop, the baby barn owl, is like every barn owl there ever was, except for one thing—he is afraid of the dark! Mrs. Barn Owl sends him down from the nest-hole to find out more about the dark, and it's not long before Plop finds out that DARK IS SUPER! This comforting story filled with gentle humor and warm and soothing illustrations has been enjoyed for decades by parents and children who want to snuggle down with a good read.

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.
