About the owl The owl is covered with children enjoying reading books, with characters and text flowing out of the books on to the owl's surface. Artist Laura Fearn has painted and drawn the images in a pen ink and watercolour style to resemble traditional book illustrations and has deliberately allowed the brush strokes to show for a painterly effect.
