Owl Sees Owl
by Laura Godwin and Rob Dunlavey
A wide awake baby owl hops out of a tree nest embarking on a solo journey, exploring the starry world. The baby owl's journey is told in a poem composed of four-word stanzas. With a "Jump, Flutter, Flap, Fly," the baby owl flies above the fall woods. When looking into the water the baby owl spies its reflection, "Owl/Sees Owl," causing the young owl to fly back home. The simple words used in the poem are repeated in reverse order as the baby owl flies home. A beautiful illustrated story with simple text that forms a poem that tells of a baby owl's solo journey and its return back home.
