Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 12/01/2020 Gr 2–5—This fun, humorous book explains scientific facts and is perfect for fans of owls and other birds. Professor Olaf, a talking owl with glasses, begins the narrative in a classroom filled with diagrams, charts, and more. The bright spreads depict specific characteristics or traits of owls (such as where their ears are or what owl feathers typically look like). Information is grouped into lessons that pose a question to readers. If readers can answer the question, they are one step closer to "becoming" an owl. The format also allows youngsters to effortlessly learn about this majestic animal. The back matter includes an index. VERDICT A good purchase for elementary school collections, especially patrons who love owls, for the vibrant illustrations and engaging text.—Molly Dettmann, Norman North H.S., OK - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
