Owly is a book that has no words except some noises. It’s a comic book. It’s a chapter book. I have to use a bookmark! The books are funny and happy and sad. I don’t know why they’re so good, but I think they’s so good!
My favorite Owly book was Flying Lessons. Owly is an owl. There’s also Wormy. Wormy is a worm. He’s Owly’s friend. Wormy meets a flying squirrel and then Owly meets the flying squirrel. It was in the night. They live in a tree house. The flying squirrel was scared of Wormy and Owly at first. Then they become friends.
[Mushroom did a post for me, so I thought it was only fair that BalletBoy get a chance too. He sat curled up reading the first Owly novel with such intensity that I knew he was in love with the book. For the first time I got to hear the words, “Go away, I’m reading!” from one of my kids.]
