Absolutely adorable – loved it from cover to cover!
This book was fabulous!
Matt Sewell goes through all of the owl breeds scattered throughout the world and provides little snippets into their species.
His off-the-cuff humor was perfect for this quirky book.
So many books about owls end up being chock-full of facts that (while interesting) tend to be a bit dry. Thankfully, this was never the case in Sewell’s book.
To be honest, owls aren’t the brightest of birds, amazing as they are; parrots and crows are much smarter.
Each owl described was accompanied by a simplistically beautiful and vibrant watercolor – the way he captured the personality of these birds in just a few strokes of his brush was truly magnificent.
I loved how he talked about the common myths accompanied with owl breeds – it really made the book fun and exciting!
It’s all in the eyes: those magnificent piercing optics are what make all owls look like they are deep in concentrated scrutiny and steeped in long-lost knowledge
Definitely a fabulous book to pick up for the owl lover in your life!
