The Theme Of This Story!
The theme of this story in my opinion is "Save The Owls".I think this because the kids are trying to save and protect the owls.I also think the author is trying to encourage kids to protect the wildlife and take care of it.
This is an important scene because It represents what the kids are trying to save.The kids want to protect the owls and their homes and they want to make sure the restaurant is not built on top of the owls' homes.
