The Wonderful World Was Waiting - Lauren Fennemore
The Wonderful World Was Waiting is the perfect follow-up to Lauren Fennemore’s popular 2020 children’s picture book The Year We Muddled Through. This children’s book captures the magic in everyday experiences – simple things many children growing up during lockdown may be experiencing for the very first time.
As we start to emerge from the pandemic and rediscover the world again, this uplifting rhyming story will capture the imagination of young readers, bringing reassurance and excitement as we start to get back to normal life again. With a renewed sense of appreciation and joy, The Wonderful World Was Waiting captures how magical these everyday experiences are - roller-coasters, bus rides, magical mermaids in swimming lessons and playful picnics at the zoo.
Beautifully illustrated by Zoe Damoulakis with magic and sensitivity, this book will have a special place on the bookshelf of any family who has ‘muddled through’ 2020 and emerged out the other side to explore our wonderful world again. A keepsake to treasure during this time of change, and a wonderful gift.
Written by Lauren Fennemore.

Owlet Press was founded by Samuel Langley-Swain in 2018, working with authors and illustrators with a shared passion – picture books which reflect the true diversity in children’s lives. Focusing on the challenges children face today and packaging these big issues into inclusive and accessible stories for small readers to digest and discuss with friends, families and schools. This indie children’s book publisher aims to change the world one book at a time, along with the best authors and illustrators to tell these stories.
Owlet Press have always published books that are 'incidentally inclusive' from day one and look to push this further with every title. With authors and illustrators from all walks of life - diversity is the driving ethos within this publisher. Owlet believe that it is key for young readers of colour to see children like them (and for white, non-disabled children to see children that don't always look like them) in books experiencing the joy and magic of playful, imaginative stories - a belief that we share at Babipur.
