The Christmas Owl is a sweet picture book that tells the story of an owl that has fallen out of his perch.
He is hurt and cannot fly so he seeks out refuge in other animals homes.
Each animal is leery of this owl but eventually allows him to come in and shares their meal. The owl stays the night but moves on until he is eventually healed and can return home.
On Christmas Eve as he returns home he stops at each of his new found friends and returns with gifts of gratitude.
The illustrations by Helen H. Wu were phenomenal. The looked like each had been painted and came straight out of a Saturday Evening Post Card from Hallmark. Each intricately portraying the animal's home being told.
The story is written in rhyme and has an even flow to it. Angela Muse tells the story of each flawlessly. She manages to get the point across to the reader that kindness goes a long way and gratitude is key to happiness.
I loved this story book. It gets 5 stars.
