The eponymous owls

from Three Little Owls, by Emanuele Luzzati and John Yeoman

Emanuele Luzzati's poetic version of a traditional Italian Nativity story remained unillustrated among the artist's papers, until Quentin was invited by the Luzzati Museum in Genoa to illustrate it in 2013. It was published simultaneously in English and Italian (titled ‘Filastrocca di Natale’)
