The Buke of the Howlat
Originally written in the 1440s by Richard Holland, a Scottish cleric, The Buke of the Howlat is one of the great poetic gems of medieval Scots.
Believing himself to be ugly, a young owl decides to speak to the most handsome bird of all, the peacock, and ask for his help. At a huge feast, Nature herself orders all the birds present to give the owl one of their feathers. But the howlat's initial joy turns to unbearable arrogance at his new-found beauty, and drastic action must be taken. A Scottish children's classic in paperback format.
