A Bit Lost

A Bit Lost, from Chris Haugton, is filled with his trademark humour and stylish illustrations.

A Bit Lost begins with a clever half page flap, which the kids turn over to reveal that Little Owl has fallen out of the tree .... leaving mum behind.  And so begins the premise of the story - Little Owl trying to find his mummy.  This is handled with great humour as Little Owl is befriended by squirrel who asks him what his mummy looks like!

With each snippet of a description squirrel leaps in with an "I know! I know!" and goes off to find .... a totally unsuitable animal.  For example, the description "VERY BIG" leads to a bear - this is where the giggles came from!

The illustrations are stunning.  The burnt oranges and reds for the silhouetted forest are warm and comforting.  The striking illustrations of each animal, with bold block colouring, convey their characters perfectly, and the cute owl with gorgeous large eyes .... Chris has even developed a fair trade hand puppet on his character..  Simple, short lines of text make it ideal reading for the younger age group.

A Bit Lost

This is a great bedtime book. It's funny and warm and the illustrations are great. My 2 year old loves the different animals and I'm quite happy to read it 8 times before I'm allowed to put it down! Some children's books I dread having to read but this one makes me smile as much as the Toddler. The last page gets a great uh-oh!
