Adult barn owls raise their young together, taking turns with the feeding task. But Papa Hoot is missing! Hootin feels she must handle raising her two young owlets alone. But is she really alone? Or can she be flexible? The farm dog, Ollie, and the barn cat, Feebs, bring this to her attention and volunteer to watch over them for her while she's gone. While in the woods, a storm comes up and she has to find shelter. She finds it - and more - when she meets a red fox, Kit. A surprise ending will make everyone smile.
About the Author
A semi-retired elementary school teacher, Bandana Acres author Kathy J Perry now enjoys writing and illustrating early chapter books about animals who learn valuable lessons about friendships. Her goal is to help kids enjoy learning to read as well as apply what they've learned to their own lives. Her fun, animal adventures will appeal to first and second-graders and to pre-schoolers as a read-aloud story. Soft, watercolor illustrations have been a source of joy for Kathy to draw and paint.

Love this sweet book series - they are all great. Easy to read, great intro to chapter books for kids. Love the lessons and messages in each with different virtues/values in relationships with others. And each book has thought-provoking questions at the end to discuss with the kids. Also, Kathy is super nice and helpful! Can't say enough - well worth the price!
