Welcome to the wonderful world of Papa Owl.

Every child has a gift inside them that could light up the sky, and an idea to change the world for the better

Our wish is to encourage every child to draw, make, build and invent. Every child has a hidden idea, has the ability to create a life changing invention, or to share an amazing story.

We want to encourage as many children and families as possible to get outside and explore the wonderful world we live in. To spend time exploring the countryside, or to walk on a beach or visit a park.

Papa Owl books are based around a community of people and animals that live on a fictional island called Sandy Island that is near the Isle of Wight. Papa Owl is the central character.
