Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A School Library Journal Best Book of the Year<br> <br> "Simple yet stirring, this is perfect for preschooler bedtimes."-- Booklist starred review<br> <br> Fans of the classic picture book Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and Patrick Benson will adore this utterly simple picture book in which a baby owl goes off on his first adventure. <br> <br> With just three or four words per page, this story follows a baby owl one night as he leaves the safety of his nest ( Home/Mama/Brother/Sister ) and explores the starry world around him ( Soar/Glide/Swoop/Swoosh ). Inspired by reverso poetry, the words reverse in the middle when the baby owl is startled upon seeing his reflection in the pond ( Owl/Sees/Owl ). Afraid of it, little owl takes off toward home, soaring over farms and forests ( Swoosh/Swoop/Glide/Soar ) until he is finally safely home again ( Sister/Brother/Mama/Home ).<br> <br> "Fans of Jane Yolen's Owl Moon and Martin Waddell's Owl Babies will also love this calming story about an owl's first adventure." -- School Library Journal, Starred
