Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5. In this third book in the Owly series, Owly and Wormy are eager to make friends with their new neighbor, a flying squirrel. Unfortunately, flying squirrels are afraid of owls. Wormy tries to convince the squirrel that Owly is kind and gentle, but the squirrel is doubtful; it likes Wormy immensely, however, and takes him flying at night. When morning comes and the squirrel goes to sleep, Wormy is stuck in a tree, and Owly, who failed his childhood flying lessons, doesn't know what to do. When Wormy jumps and is hurt, the squirrel saves his new friend and, seeing Owly's genuine concern for Wormy, reconsiders his fear of owls and offers to teach Owly to fly. Runton hits the mark again with this charming tale of confronting and overcoming fears. His expressive, animated black-and-white art breathes life into the lovable characters in a way that will appeal to readers both younger and older than the target age group. Tina Coleman

If Owly came in a board book, I would recommend this series to all new moms.

Runton uses endearing and entertaining pictures to tell his story without any words, and the adorable characters will pull on the most cynical of heart-strings.

This all-ages graphic novel is the perfect gift for a friend or for yourself! Runton uses endearing and entertaining pictures to tell his story without any words, and the adorable characters will pull on the most cynical of heart-strings.

Flying Lessons is the third adventure of Owly and Wormy, but you will have no trouble jumping into the story if it is the first time you've picked up an Owly book. Once again, Owly sets out to make a new friend in the forest, and along the way he learns about overcoming stereotypes and childhood fears.

Runton is unparalleled in his ability to capture the heart and imagination of his readers. Flying Lessons was just as enjoyable as the previous two Owly books, and I can't wait for the next Owly story to come out!

I love Owly, and Andy Runton for putting pen to paper and creating such a sweet, lovable character.
If Owly came in a board book, I would recommend this series to all new moms.
It's still the perfect book style to share with your children. Every Owly story will inspire conversation.

I'd recommend Owly to ages 4 to 10 years... And to anyone who wants to spend a moment in a precious tale.

In one of my art classes we had to do a series of drawings that conveyed meaning and dialogue without actually having words. My teaching assistant brought it the first book of this series because the artist Andy Runton does just that with this series. It is about a vegetarian owl and his forest friends learning different lessons, meeting new animals and much more. I met the artist at comic con and am hooked on these. My small brother also loves these because I read these to him, but since they have no words I have to come up with them myself and It can definetly be entertaining.

I love these books, but they were actually recommended to me by my great local comic store for my pre-reading niece. She LOVES that she can read a whole pretty complicated story herself because they don't have any words. The illustrations are terrific, and she understands all the concepts. She needs a little help with the symbols the first time through, but then she reads and rereads these endlessly.

Bah, just go out and pick up all three (soon to be four) Owly books. You'll be glad you did. See the other positive reviews for the first three volumes if you really need a reason - or just google Andy Runton and check out the samples available on his site.

The third installment of Owly's adventures comes even more highly recommended than the first two! In this book, Owly and Wormy encounter a mysterious flying creature in the woods and we flash back to Owly's own attempts at learning to fly!
