Got so excited about the kid, I almost forgot about the book:
Before I wrote the Owl Book, I did a lot of research. Went to a lot of bookstores. Read a lot of cardboard-backed bestsellers.
But, guys. Nothing, I mean nothing, is going to prepare you for children’s book writing like owning an actual child. I have read, on average, 4-to-4-bazillion baby books a night for the last two years. I can recite “Are You A Cow?” and “Click Clack Moo” and even “The Wonderful Sounds Mr. Brown Can Do” by heart.
So when it came time to write another one, the only preparation involved was figuring out where I was going to get the time to illustrate it.
I’m really proud of this book. I love how it came out. I want to share it with people. So I’m releasing a free pdf copy right here.
And if you do love it so much you want it in book form,click here.
And to answer an FAQ- Yes, a Coo (or Cou) is a real creature. I discovered them on a family trip to Scotland years ago. I thought the name sounded fun. It still does.
