About the book
Goodnight Hoot is the first book title of the Give a Hoot brand which has enjoyed success on the high street with retail giants such as John Lewis, Waterstones and Ryman.
Produced across a range of stationery products, Give a Hoot outsold other major licence properties such as Moshi Monsters, Hello Kitty, One Direction and Spider-man in like-for-like products. This tactile, die-cut board book features Hoot the owl and his woodland friends in a series of charming, stylised illustrations as they say goodnight and bed down in their natural landscape.
The die-cut concentric circles frame each distinctive woodland environment which includes a log, rabbit hole, nest, lily pad, flower and leaf to the final page – the wood at night.Goodnight Hoot is a beautiful book that can become part of any young child’s bedtime routine.
The Author / Illustrator
Rowena Blyth’s illustration work for Fourth Wall was shortlisted for a Henries Award for three consecutive years, with her beautiful character-led greetings cards eventually winning a 2014 award for her Moggies & Doggies range. In addition to this, her owl creation Give a Hoot was both a Henries finalist and ‘License This’ award finalist at Brand Licensing Europe 2014. The marriage of Rowena’s illustration and design style with Fourth Wall’s diverse product offering has proven to be a mainstream retail success.
