A sweet, all-ages graphic novel telling how to be brave, make new friends, and be kind, all without words. A great installment from a highly recommended series!

Deceptively simple, but touching and deep. A must read. Owly is innocent, kind, and brave. He must help Wormy face is fears and reach out to those in need. :)

All the owly books are good at stressing that one should not judge another just because of their "species". An owl can be kind even to its prey, a worm can be brave, etc. Mistakes are often made from this judgment, but if you throw away those misunderstandings you can have many friends like Owly does.
