About the book: 
All is good in the life of Angry Owl – so much so that he decides to join in the beautiful singing he hears every day from a nearby tree. He grabs a guitar, feeling confident that he’ll be the greatest musician ever. To his great disappointment, the other birds fly away from the dreadful noise of his playing. By now Angry Owl really wants to find a hobby so he tries his hand at rugby, cooking, knitting, painting and dancing. But each ends in failure. After a conversation with Mr Dove, he realises that to be good at something, you have to practise and practise. So Angry Owl returns to his guitar and practises until he can play well.
In Angry Owl Finds A Hobby  young children will be entertained by the comical situations in which the owl finds himself in his search for the perfect hobby. As ever Kerryn Ponter’s illustrations are delightful and amusing. This is the fourth title in her Angry Owl series.
Ook in Afrikaans beskikbaar as Kwaai Uil kry 'n stokperdjie
