OWL MOON

By: Jane Yolen Illustrated by: John Schoeherr

By Megan Steele

Late one winter night a little girl and her father go owling. The trees stand still as statues and the world is silent as a dream. Whoo-whoo-whoo, the father calls to the mysterious nighttime bird.But there is no answer.

Wordlessly the two companions walk along, or when you go owling you don't need words. You don't need anything but hope. Sometimes there isn't an owl, but sometimes there is. At the end of this book the girl and her father will hear and see theGreat Horned Owl. I like the last page when it said"When you go owling you do not need words or warm or anything but hope. Thats what Pa says. The kind of hope that flies on silent wings under a shining Owl Moon."
