I love this book! Yolen captures the magic of a night "owling".
"When you go owling
you don't need words
or warm
or anything but hope.
That's what pa says.
The kind of hope
that flies
on silent wings
under a shining
Owl Moon."

A perfect pairing of poetic writing and illustrations with hidden details that invite the reader to step into the story and be filled with awe and wonder.
