Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
A cold, lost owl squeezes into a warm, cozy shed and falls asleep one stormy night. In the morning he finds himself in a hen house amid a flock of hens who are complaining that he is far from the rooster they need. But one hen decides to teach him how to be a rooster. He managing the marching and the guarding, but can't say anything but "Hooo!" Just then, a rat invades the hen house, and the owl becomes a hero. And "Cock-a-doodle-hoooo" is quite satisfactory after all. The end-papers summarize the tale, with the front showing a bedraggled owl slouching through the farmyard in the rain; the back has the same yard in the sunshine with the owl leading a parade of chickens. Inked outlines and transparent paints define the characters as they display their varying emotions. Speech balloons effectively supplement the brief text, giving the chickens a chance to add their voice to the action. The hens are pleased, but we are a bit surprised when the nasty, snarling rat is "gobbled up."
School Library Journal

PreS - Gr 2 - Can an owl find happiness in a henhouse? The answer is yes, at least in this farmyard. Desperately in need of a home, he takes refuge in a shed one stormy night and learns at daybreak that the hens who live there are in need of a rooster. He doesn't have the necessary qualifications, and, with one notable exception, no one considers him a candidate-until he uses a skill for which he is well recognized against an intruding rat. The bird's unique ability wins over his critics, and his future appears to be happily settled. Children will enjoy the humorous simplicity of the story and the colorful, cartoonlike illustrations. Those who are able to read it on their own will take additional pleasure from the speech bubbles. Owl's wide-eyed expressions and juxtaposition to the hens are sure to capture the attention of the intended audience. Libraries looking for a new read-aloud for a farm-themed storyhour will want to consider letting Owl roost on their shelves.-Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA

Kirkus Reviews
An owl takes over a rooster's role (well, mostly) in this rather ingenuous barnyard episode. Flabbergasted to find an owl roosting among them after a stormy night, most of the henhouse's feathered residents want to drive the stranger away. Though one speckled hen takes him under her wing, teaching him to scratch and pick just like a rooster, he can't quite get the hang of cock-a-doodling-until he really proves his worth by gobbling down a marauding, egg-eating rat. After that ,he manages a crow (see title) that's good enough for his grateful new harem. Two high spots sandwich the big cartoon illustrations: an opening scene in which the small, weary owl gets an unconscious cuddle from the sleeping hens; and a final view of him strutting out in front of a line of hens and chicks, past an astounded farmer. Even younger children may be left wondering where the next generation of chicks will be coming from, but the speckled hen's compassion and the owl's willingness to work at finding ways to fit in without compromising his essential nature thematically anchor a warmly inclusive tale.
