Owlet and Twiglet are two little owls who live in a nest on a branch of their beloved Apple Tree. The old tree has looked after them ever since their parents were killed by a hawk. Now it’s time for them to fly the nest, but will they have the courage? 

‘Owlet and Twiglet’ is a special book about the power of love. Sabien Clement expresses the vulnerability of the little owls in a beautifully sensitive way, in shades of green with orange accents. She represents their longing for their parents in moving illustrations bursting with warmth. Raf Walschaerts and Ariane Sonck demonstrate their skill with words in this story, which never feels heavy despite being full of emotion.
