Product description

This is the picture book for every little one’s shelf, about how sometimes the smallest people make the biggest difference. A beautiful owl lives in the tree outside Ben’s house. Ben calls him Mr Hoot. When grown-ups want to chop down Mr Hoot’s tree, Ben has to act fast to save him. This warm, funny and inspiring story shows how we can all protect the wildlife that lives all around us. With characteristic warmth and humour, Helen Stephens’ exquisite new picture book celebrates the precious wildlife that lives all around us, and shows how even the smallest of us can help to protect it.

  • Hugely topical: a warmly funny environmental book with heart – will inspire children to look out for, love and protect their local wildlife
  • Striking cover design with gold foil – a perfect gift book
  • Helen Stephens is an Instagram star with nearly 20,000 followers. She also launched her own online illustration course, The Good Ship Illustration

Our September 2021 Ages 3-4 Book of the Month

September brings a new school start, a change in the air and also a new Book of the month that is topical and with a fabulous autumnal-feeling that I’ve been waiting to share!

Saving Mr Hoot is an inspiring new picture book, written and illustrated by Helen Stephens, who based the story on her own childhood experience of an owl that lived on her street. In this heart-warming tale we meet little Ben, who takes a stand and acts to save ‘Mr Hoot’ when the grown-ups threaten to chop down his tree… With an underlying message of conservation and kindness, this story will encourage your child to look out for, love and protect nature. I adore autumn, and I can’t think of a nicer book to share as the season begins to shift and the pictures convey so much warmth on those approaching dark nights.
