The Howlat was a young owl, with dowdy, fluffy feathers and a hooked beak. He blamed Nature for his ugliness and appealed to the other birds for help. They took pity on poor Howlat; but as soon as they had decked him out in finery, he became impossibly conceited – which is when they flew off and left him alone in the night. This ancient Scottish fable is retold by James Robertson with magnificent illustrations by Kate Leiper.
