Little Owl and Little Rabbit live in the same oak tree, but they've never met. While Little Rabbit hops through the forest by day, Little Owl soars over it by night.

When they discover they are neighbors, the pair are desperate to meet. How can two animals play together when Little Owl wakes up just as Little Rabbit goes to sleep?

Then one night, a big, bright full moon appears. Will Little Owl and Little Rabbit finally get to play together?

A sweet, warm-hearted story of friendship set in the natural world, with words by much-loved Polish author Przemysław Wechterowicz and beautiful illustrations from the award-winning illustrator Emilia Dziubak, co-creator of USBBY Outstanding International Book The House of Lost and Found. This charming tale is a perfect book for bedtime.
