Thank you Candlewick Press for the adorable nonfiction picture book (and Cybils nominee) SO YOU WANT TO BE AN OWL, where Professor Olaf walks us initiate-hopefuls through the ways of Team Owl. In a hilarious fourth-wall-breaking lesson, the reader is evaluated in their suitability for joining the Strigaform genus.

Like a true educator, Professor Olaf explains the bigger words and leaves an index in the back of the book to track all the different owl data.


Packed with fascinating and fun owl facts, this book is sure to get young readers (ages four to eight) giggling and learning about these legendary birds. Maddie Frost’s adorable illustrations add visual interest to make this book a compulsive read.

SO YOU WANT TO BE AN OWL, by Jane Porter (Author) and Maddie Frost (Illustrator) is out now from Candlewick Press.
