Mopoke by Philip Bunting

Mopoke by Philip Bunting promotes self-awareness, tolerance and self-management.
Bunting’s website explains that a Mopoke is “the Australian nickname for the Southern Boobook, our smallest and most common species of owl. They are known for a love of peace and quiet, and their eponymous “mo-poke” call.” The Mopoke in the book struggles to find the peace and quiet it desires among the disturbances of the bush. 

Each page has one sentence beginning with “This is…” to describe the owl illustrated on the opposite page, their name being a play on the word Mopoke – slowpoke, fropoke, crowpoke.
