A cunning story that will help children who are afraid of the dark to appreciate it and be unafraid. Plop the owlet is a special case, of course, because he is a nightbird but even he has to be persuaded by a boy with fireworks, an old woman with memories, an astronomer with a telescope among others that dark is exciting, dark is kind, dark is wonderful. A witty, easy-to-read text with a splendid ending.
