Patrick Benson enlarged his technique of cross-hatching for the illustrations of OWL BABIES so that it would have "a more graphic image -- rather like a woodcut."

wonderful good-night-story Apr 1, 2000
This book has been my favourite good night story since I first saw it7 years ago. The drawings are very cute and make the little bear comealive when he plays around his bed. Big Bear stays patient and in the end gives Little Bear a great present: the wonderful lights of the stars and he moon. Feeling all safe in Big Bears arm Little Bear can finally go to sleep happily.
