Petaluma - In this clever twist on the perennial bedtime book, a mama owl rouses her baby owl at dusk to introduce her little one to the beautiful nocturnal world around them. This beautiful picture book, created by husband-and-wife duo Matthew Heroux and Wednesday Kirwan, offers comforting answers for children who are hesitant to fall asleep. Lyrical text and luminous illustrations follow a mama and baby owl as they tour their forest habitat, crossing paths with glowing fireflies, leaping bunnies, and all the other creatures that call the woods their home.
This event is part of our "Write in Your Own Backyard Series," which spotlights the work of local and regional book publishers. This season's highlighted publisher is Petaluma-based Cameron & Company, specializing in “books that need to be books,” with a focus on photography, art, food/wine, children’s, and other publications of regional interest.
