    I love it when Plop discovers how wonderful the dark is and that he is not afraid anymore. It’s a nice book and he’s a sweet little owl!

  2. smealand says:

    when I read the book it helped me get over my fear of the dark as well

  3. kclarke says:

    This is a lovely book that is very enjoyable. Personally, I listened to it as an audio book. A fabulous story about an owl who is terrified of the dark and learns to control its fear.

  4. Leo Trelfer says:

    I liked it when the owl dropped down from the tree every single time, and I liked it when Plop was not afraid of the dark.

  5. Frances Hartland says:

    This book is about learning not to be afraid of the dark, because dark is nice and kind and helpful. I liked the chapter when the owl and the cat chatted because I like cats and I liked the cat saying that the dark is beautiful.

    I like this book because everybody tells Plop that the dark is special but everybody tells a different special thing about the dark

  7. fpatten says:

    This book is a really good book and shows never to give up. Plop a little owl is keen to learn to fly but the thing stopping him is complete fear of the dark.

    I remember reading this book when we were in year 1. It was an amazingly descriptive story and altogether was a really entertaining book for the whole class.

    I like this book because this little owl is a little peculiar.
    Unlike most owls this one dislikes the dark so much he’s like a small toddler in his bedroom at night.
    This bird hates the dark but then something happens…

    The owl who was afraid of the dark is a great story because the owl is a odenery owl and nomol owls love the dark.❤️

    Its the owls first flight but there is one problem he is scared of the dark.

  17. rmaccallumhall says:

    I like this book – it is quite funny and Plop is quite greedy. His parents work all night hunting for his food. I like the way all the different people tell him things about the dark and give him things and he gets excited. I have not finished it yet but I guess that he will start to like the dark soon.

    Plop is just like every other barn owl except he is afraid of the dark so his mother tells him to go and find out why the dark is not really scary . Will plop ever face his fear or will he be afraid of the dark forevermore?

    I loved reading this book in year 3 it was all about a little owl that was very scared of the dark! So he would not go out at night. How scared could he get ? Will he ever get over his fear?

  28. Mr Milne says:

    Plop was a childhood favourite of mine. Funny and gentle, it helped me to understand, like Plop, that darkness of night-time is beautiful. I have always remembered Plop’s night-time walk with the black cat at the end of the book and sense of wonder at the night-time world that the cat showed him.

  29. Agnes Milne says:
