Lu's Reviews is a new feature where my almost eight year old daughter and I talk about the books we're reading together. Some are bought, some may have been sent to myself from publishers for review. In all cases they have been pulled down from the book shelf by Lucy herself and read for no other reason than she wanted to.
Plop, the Baby Barn Owl, is like every Barn Owl there ever was, except for one thing—he is afraid of the dark. "Dark is nasty" he says and so he won't go hunting with his parents. Mrs. Barn Owl sends him down from his nest-hole to ask about the dark and he meets a little boy waiting for the fireworks to begin, an old lady, a scout out camping, a girl who tells him about Father Christmas, a man with a telescope, and a black cat who takes him exploring. He realizes that through these encounters that dark is super after all. (from Goodreads.com)

Why did I choose this book? I chose this book because it is My mum’s favourite.
What I liked about this book: It was full with laughter. Plop is cute and fluffy.
I liked the way plop fell off the top branch on purpose. It was exiting when he met lots off people and found out lots about the dark. I learnt lots as well.
What I didn't like: There was nothing I didn’t like. It was all really good.
This book made me feel: It made me feel like I was going to cry because it was so sweet.
Would I read it again and recommend to my friends? I would definitely read it again I would send it to my friends that liked animals.
I rate this book: 5 out of 5. It was amazing!
