Owls: Our Most Charming Bird

I like owls. I’m no ornithologist, but I do have an interest in these nocturnal creatures, which often look endearing in their own unique way. In Matt Sewell’s 128-page text-and-picture book, Owls: Our Most Charming Bird, the author features all sorts of owls, from the jubula lettii (maned owl) to the aegolius harrisii (buff-fronted owl).

Sewell writes a paragraph or two about each owl presented in the book, sharing fun facts about the specific owl, as well as what part of world the owl is native to. On the opposing side of each page of text, Sewell includes a color drawing of the corresponding owl. The drawings are very cute – and detailed. The book is suitable for anyone, but I would especially recommend it to middle grade readers.
