Product Details


“Through a series of photographic watercolors and pithy paragraphs, Pringle and Henderson illumine the history of the owl, its many forms, and its varied habitats… The text helpfully breaks down a discussion of species into a handful of fun facts… Complete with a glossary of terms, index, and suggested-reading list, this book—true to its swooping subject matter—is swift, exacting, and sure to hook any reader.” — Booklist

“Pringle and Henderson successfully pair up again for the newest installment in this series…. the author thoroughly covers the basics of these nocturnal birds, shedding light on habitat, life cycle, and biology…. Back matter will lead young researchers to learn more, and the glossary is especially informative. A great purchase for report writers, budding ornithologists, and generally curious readers.” — School Library Journal

In this information-rich addition to the Strange and Wonderful series, Pringle highlights several owl species in a variety of habitats. Working in muted watercolor and pencil, Henderson shows owls flying, hunting for food… the pages (are) divided into accessible blocks, allowing Pringle to explore everything from the lore surrounding owls (from Mayan beliefs to Harry Potter) to the ins and outs of their anatomy, their predatory habits, and the threats they face.” – Publishers Weekly
