I enjoyed the whimsical illustrations and the lettering style as well as the story.

This is one very understanding and kind mother. Little Owl doesn't like his new scarf, so he loses it on purpose, rather than get mad, his mother decides to make a new one with his help. The pictures and colours are first rate, and for the most part the story is cute. But the message is, on the one hand good (a mother should be kind to her child and should work together), but on the other hand bad (if a child doesn't like a present, they don't need to be grateful and they can purposefully lose it, therefore getting a better present). The positives outweigh the negative messages in the end though.
