Wise Owl's books are scattered and wet, except for "a history book, but that was quite dry."
"Hare tossed a straw in the air, to see which way he could go."

Lovely little bits like that all through. I wish I could find more of these tales, esp. the earlier ones, in which we apparently learn why Wise Owl doesn't eat Little Grey Rabbit or the other friends.
Children's literature as antidote for a cold, cruel, grown up world. This is a good snuggly bed time story for when its raining. Except that it is ominously unclear whether or not Wise Owl will eat the Little Grey Bunny. There's some kind of moral but I can't quite grasp it. Wise Owl is the boss so you can either respect him or he's just going to make a nest in your woodshed without your permission? The illustrations are great.
An Owl's house, furnished with interesting items and bad puns, becomes a victim of a storm but is replaced by who else but Grey Rabbit. Plot, character, friendship.
Adored the Alison Utley books as a child... this was possibly my favourite.
