Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6 --Heinrich adopted a great horned owlet that he found nearly frozen to death in the Vermont woods and kept it for three years, training it to hunt for its food. This fascinating book, written in diary form, details changes in the owl's appearance as he grows, his awakening interest in the natural world around him, and his continual preoccupation with food and its capture. A chapter detailing the fall and winter Bubo spent caged at a raptor center (for injured birds of prey) shows the sad effects of raising an owl in captivity. The necessity of providing the owl with meals of recently killed animals should discourage most young people from wanting one as a pet. Illustrated with black-and-white photos of Bubo and Heinrich's lifelike sketches of the young owl, there are also drawings of feathers, talons, skulls, and foot/leg anatomy. The diary is an edited version of One Man's Owl (Princeton Univ. Pr, 1987), which includes the scientific observations of Heinrich and others relating to Bubo's behavior. This version for children ends with two pages of factual information on the great horned owl and instructions for keeping a nature diary. Of the many children's books on owls, only Farley Mowat's fictionalized Owls in the Family (Little, 1962) describes the habits of a captured owl. His account of the antics of two pet owls would provide a nice companion piece to Heinrich's diary. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
