The Owl who was afraid of the Dark
'You are only afraid of the dark,' Mrs Barn Owl said, 'because you don't know about it,' and she sent Plop down to talk with all sorts of people on the ground below. 'Dark is exciting,' said a little boy on Bonfire Day, 'Dark is fun,' said a boy scout guarding a camp-fire, and 'Dark is wonderful,' said an astronomer. In fact there wasn't one single person who didn't like the dark, but it made no difference to poor Plop; he was still scared of it - until he talked it over with another animal, a black, night-walking cat.
