By Jane Yolen, illustrations by John Schoenherr. About a father daughter trip to find the elusive great horned owl. Gorgeous book!
Jane Yolen created a gentle, poetic story that beautifully illustrates the special companionship of a young child and her father as well as mankind's forgotten place and relationship with nature. Award-winning John Schoenherr's turned every page into a beautiful masterpiece.
The young girl, in fact, is based on the author's own daughter. A really special picture book, infused with poetry, which is perfect for reading aloud again and again. This book has a place on my children's bookshelf.
