Nisam ja slatka


Any child who hates to be cuddled and cooed over by grown-ups will likely identify with cuter-than-cute Baby Owl. “I’m not cute!” the winged hero proclaims to everyone who tells him he’s adorable or small. “I am a huge and scary hunting machine with great big soft and silent wings.”


Allen’s deft use of black line and woodsy palette features a toddler who puts up with more than enough pinched cheeks and unwanted hugs. He cringes when Fox pats his head and squirms when Squirrel admires his expressive “big baby eyes.” It’s not until Mama agrees with him that he’s not cute at all, that Baby Owl wonders if his declaration isn’t exactly in his best interest.
