Because they are such a rare sight, it is easy to forget how
magnificent owls are. Every feature that makes us stop and stare actually
serves a very useful purpose. Those large piercing eyes ensure that they’ll
never lose sight of their prey. And those round moony faces actually serve as
satellite dishes to capture all sound and direct it towards their ears. All the
better to hear their next snack.
Matt Sewell has

illustrations. Check this book out today, and discover your new favorite owl!
My personal fave? The Greater Sooty Owl. They have little speckles that look
like stars in a night sky.
