What's Owl Moon About

Publisher Summary

Celebrating 30 years of the beloved classic Owl Moon from renowned children’s book author Jane Yolen and Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator John Schoenherr!

Late one winter night a little girl and her father go owling. The trees stand still as statues and the world is silent as a dream. Whoo-whoo-whoo, the father calls to the mysterious nighttime bird.

But there is no answer.

Wordlessly the two companions walk along, for when you go owling you don’t need words. You don’t need anything but hope. Sometimes there isn’t an owl, but sometimes there is.

This book has beautiful illustrations and a sweet story about a child who goes “owling” with their dad. I know this book is generally loved, and while I like it, it’s just not a personal favorite or one I’d want to read over and over again.
