Owl Moon

"It was late one winter night, long past my bedtime, when Pa and I went owling." Bundled in warm clothes on a cold winter night, a girl and her father go out walking and looking for owls. As Pa calls softly into the night, the pair strain their ears for a reply. When it comes, their hearts fill with hope that they will see an owl... but even if they don't, they'll still have the pleasure of this nighttime adventure together.

This modern classic picture book captures a child's ability to take wonder in a simple activity. Beloved author Jane Yolen's lyrical text has charm that arises from its simplicity, while John Schoenherr's Caldecott Medal-winning illustrations help bring richness to the soft, dark countryside scenes. It's a tribute to the ordinary pleasures of childhood: staying up past your bedtime, spending time in the great outdoors, and enjoying a special moment with a loving father.

Description

"A girl and her father go owling on a moonlit winter night near the farm where they live. Bundled tight in wool clothes, they trudge through snow.... An air of expectancy builds as Pa imitates the Great Horned Owl's call once without answer, then again.... In harmony with the art, the melodious text brings to life an unusual countryside adventure." — Publisher's Weekly

"As expansive as the broad sweep of the great owl's wings and as close and comforting as a small hand held on a wintry night... The visual images have a sense of depth and seem to invite readers into this special nighttime world." — School Library Journal
