owl moon

Jane Yolen's Owl Moon
is the perfect accompaniment to the onset of these cooler months. John Schoenherr's starkly beautiful images of sweeping landscapes blanketed in snow make those of us who live in TX wish we could share a little more of that with our children. Luckily, with this gorgeous book, we can (at least as literary voyeurs)! Yolen's prose is lilting, quiet, and full of shadows, like the images and story itself. A story of untamed nature, awesome wonder, and the silent strength of the father/daughter bond. I love it.
