Late one winter night a little girl and her father go owling. The trees stand still as statues and the world is silent as a dream. Whoo-whoo-whoo, the father calls to the mysterious middle of the night bird.
But there’s no answer.
Wordlessly the two companions walk along, for when you go owling you don’t want words. You don’t want anything but hope. Every so often there isn’t an owl, but Every so often there is.
Distinguished creator Jane Yolen has created a gentle, poetic story that lovingly depicts the special companionship of a young child and her father in addition to humankind’s close relationship to the natural world. Wonderfully complemented by John Schoenherr’s soft, exquisite watercolor illustrations, this can be a verbal and visual treasure, perfect for reading around and sharing at bedtime. A few of the greatest charms of children is their ability to view a simple activity as a magical adventure. Such as a walk in the woods late at night. Jane Yolen captures this wonderment in a book whose charm rises from its simplicity. “It used to be late one winter night, long past my bedtime, when Pa and I went owling.” The two walked through the woods with nothing but hope and each other in a journey in order to fascinate many a child. John Schoenherr’s illustrations help bring richness to the countryside adventure. The book won the 1988 Caldecott Medal.
