Baby Owl is exploring the woods by himself, but every animal he encounters fusses over him, gives him a hug, and tells him how cute he is. He thinks that he's a 'huge and scary hunting machine,' but none of the other animals seem to understand that. He insists over and over, 'I'm not cute!' but it doesn't do any good. When he returns home, will his mother say he's cute, too? Or does she know that he's really a fierce owl? For continued adventures with Baby Owl, check out 'I'm Not Scared!'

Eye-popping illustrations show just how big a crocodile's jaw really is or the size of a tooth of a great white shark. Or how small a dwarf goby fish is. Compare your foot with the foot of an African elephant. Additional interesting facts about the animals are at the back of the book.
