It's people versus owls in this laugh-out-loud story about one family's love for a special little owl, from bestselling nature writer and Newbery Medal winner Jean Craighead George
Borden Watson's father is out of job, and it's all the spotted owls' fault. The birds are endangered, which means loggers, like Mr. Watson, are no longer allowed to cut down trees.
It doesn't make sense to Borden. Why are owls being put first over the citizens?
But when Borden finds an owlet in the forest who needs his care, he brings it back home--much to Mr. Watson's displeasure. Hilarious chaos soon ensues, as the tiny owl makes big changes in this logging family's home, and makes his way into their hearts.
This heartwarming story is a great way for young readers to learn about important topics, like endangered species, conservation, and environmentalism.
