Originally published in 1964, this classic text about enjoying the miracle of every day life is a testament to Piatti's distinctive artwork. This lovely story is a powerful testimony to seeing the beauty in the world and standing apart from the crowd.

Why are these owls so happy? That's just what the chickens, ducks, and geese want to know. But when they send a peacock over to find out why, they're incredulous at reply. How could anyone be happy simply to see the rain and sunshine? What could be so joyful about the flowers and butterflies? As Piatti once said, ""You can draw an owl a thousand times, and never find out its secret.""


Celestino Piatti (1922-2007) was a Swiss graphic artist, painter and book designer. He was a popular illustrator of children's books and achieved international success as a designer for Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag (DTV).
