Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautiful illustrations but this book needs editing  Apr 7, 2008
I ordered this book with the plan to give it to one of my neices after reading it to determine the appropriate age level - one neice is 8 and one is 5. The book begins in a confusing way - it opens with "Nick" (who I assumed was a boy) waking to hear a sound on his roof, then skips to "It all began years ago" then skips back to the present. This method of storytelling is fine in an adult book, but it confused me in a children's book. I think children are better served by simple chronologies. Also, it turns out that Nick is an adult but you aren't clued in to that when he is first introduced. I think a lot of the phrases/words should have been worded more simply - for example: "novel experience," "on cue," "sunlight filtered through," "camouflage."

Given the level of vocabularly, I'll give the book to my eight year old neice and ask my sister to let me know what my neice thinks about it.
A Brief Story about an Owl  Mar 13, 2008
I would class this book as a children's book. I expected there to be more to it, or I wouldn't have purchased it. Not much time was spent on details of each episode in this owls life. About the time you get interested in one event, the story jumps to a different scene. When i finished reading the book, which took me less than 30 minutes, I didn't feel I knew much more about the owl than before I read the book. I felt I had missed part of the story. An interesting story, but too abreviated.
Adopted by an Owl  Mar 12, 2006
Both the pictures and the story are wonderful. The expressions given to the owl are great and the story is very warm and touching.
You don't know me, so you probably haven't sat around with me and heard me explain (usually ad nauseum) my feelings about Melodrama being a legitimate and possibly superior alternative to the two traditional forms of storytelling: Tragedy and Comedy. I won't go into the theory and application here, but to boil it down, I feel that all art must have the ability to make people FEEL (something inherent in Melodrama but not always necessary for the two others). I say all this to give a you a sense of what a high compliment it is for me to say that Adopted by an Owl made me feel (though I wouldn't call it Melodrama).

If I was the kind of guy who used the word "Kudos" (Thank the Most High that I am not), I would say: "Kudos" to Robbyn for the clarity of her prose and the wonderful honesty of her storytelling. One experiences and understands all of Gijsbert's varied feelings toward Jackson's tentative return to the wild. Kids and parents alike will find this story worthwhile (though I had to pause for a moment in reading it aloud to my kids--because I got choked up).

The illustrations are wonderful (though very similar in palette to The Legend of Leelanau). Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen is fast becoming one of my favorite illustrators.

Read this book!
Adopted by an owl  Mar 22, 2004
This is the only book I could keep the interest of my [child] for the Whole book! I will be looking for more books written by Ms. Smith. I would like to comment on the beautiful pictures. They made me feel like I was there!
