Little Owl's Orange Scarf by Tatyana Feeney When Little Owl loses his scarf at the zoo, he helps his mum knit a replacement.
 5 of 12 


He’s one of literature’s original villains but it seems Mr Wolf isn’t so big or so bad, if Debi Gliori’s What’s The Time, Mr Wolf? (Bloomsbury, £6.99 paperback) is to be believed. What is true, however, is the inspiring tale of a little boy who grew up to be a genius and change our understanding of the universe, as told by Jennifer Berne in On A Beam Of Light – A Story of Albert Einstein (Chronicle, £10.99). Like Einstein, Lucy Ladybird (Templar, £6.99) doesn’t conform to the norm. Born without spots, she learns that being different is no bad thing in Sharon King-Chai’s book filled with colours and seasons. There’s only one colour on the mind of Little Owl, who loves eating ice cream and doing sums, but definitely not his new orange scarf. When he loses it at the zoo in Little Owl’s Orange Scarf by Tatyana Feeney (Oxford University Press, £11.99), he has to help his mother make a replacement.
