Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum Atkins
Little owl keeps on howling. Animal after animal in the forest tries to find out why she is howling and they try to comfort her. Nothing the animals do comforts the little owl. She just keeps howling. The animals begin kindly but the old stag beetle threatens to nip the owl on the bottom if she does not stop howling. Together the animals decide she needs to be rocked. She still howls. Finally, little owl finds her mother. Her mother asks her what is wrong. Little owl stops howling and admits she cannot remember why she was howling in the first place. By the end the reader will laugh out loud at the little owl's silliness, but hopefully will identify with a time they felt the same way. This book is part of the "Tuff Book" series. Each page is covered in a coating that makes it tear-proof and dirt-proof. Highly recommended for preschools, libraries, and home libraries. This book will hold up to lots of wear and tear.

Kirkus Reviews

A baby owl in distress brings out the best in all the forest animals.

The silence of the dark night is disrupted by a terrible howl. Could it be a wolf? The hedgehog is the first animal to find the howler, a tiny owl with enormous eyes. Next come a crow, the industrious ant and the squirrel. None can get the owl to explain her distress or get her to stop crying, even with offers of food and fun. The mole tries a bribe of a beautiful flower necklace...which also doesn't work, though it looks nice hanging around the owl's neck. The stag beetle tries tough love, but this only makes the owl howl even louder. Feeling terrible, the stag beetle then suggests rocking the little owl to calm her andfinds a cobweb that, stretched between two trees like a hammock, is perfect for the job. They rock the little owl while the mole sings a lovely lullaby. Suddenly, the little owl flies out of her makeshift hammock and into the air, landing in the wingsof Mommy Owl, who gently asks what's wrong. And the little owl stops howling. The slight bedtime story is enhanced by beautiful illustrations in deep hues and an offbeat cast of forest animals. Laminated pages make it appropriately sturdy for the very young target audience.

It may not be especially new, but it is awfully sweet. (Picture book. 3-5)

    A fantastic read that my 2.5-year-old boy found so intoxicating,

    A fantastic read that my 2.5-year-old boy found so intoxicating, we had to hide it. While it's one of those books you can read a few times before getting annoyed, I found four to be my limit at the end of a very long day. But he also thinks it's funny, in a stupefying sort of way, that the little owl forgets why he's sad.
