Amazon Description"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, starred review. Full color. 1988 Caldecott Medal Book.
One Potato Review
Trains whistling and dogs calling and boots crunching eventually yield to the magnificent appearance of a great horned owl on a snowy moon-drenched night. Be patient here. (Father may know best, this once.) Buried deep in those woods are also a fox, a squirrel, a deer and a raccoon which you may not have noticed during previous visits. All these years later, still quiet and hard to forget.
