Owl couldn't sleep -- not while the bees were buzzing, the crows croaking, the starlings chittering, and the jays creaming. Every time there seemed to be some peace and quite, someone else landed in the hollow tree and woke Owl up again. Would Owl ever get any rest? Pat Hutchins's simple, cumulative story ends with a surprising twist that will send children off to sleep laughing.
