Scepticism in the nursery

Wise owl

Is the owl really wise?

From my childhood I remember “The animal fair” by Alice and Martin Provensen. Beautiful illustrations,  cute stories and rhymes. One my favourites questioned stereotypes.

“…And though the owl is known as wise,

he’s never won a spelling prize.”

So who really knows? Bertie doesn’t.
