From School Library Journal
Gr 1–3—Eva Wingdale enjoys drawing, going to school, and being busy. She dislikes her brother Humphrey's stinky socks, boredom, and her mom's slug sandwiches. On the first day of spring, the owlet offers to organize the first ever Treetop Owlementary Bloomtastic Festival, featuring a bake-off and talent, fashion, and art shows. With the event only seven days away, Eva's not sure she can get everything done in time. Instead of canceling, though, she enlists help from her classmates and manages to pull off a successful festival. Written in diary format with speech bubbles, the 10 chapters have lively, brightly colored illustrations, often several per page. This early chapter book is a nice step between first readers and series such as Barbara Parks's "Junie B. Jones" and Mary Pope Osborne's "Magic Tree House" (both Random).—Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga Public Library System, OH --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

In this cute story, Eva the owl decides to "lead" her class in throwing a festival to celebrate the coming spring. The problem is, Eva thinks that leading means doing everything herself. She ignores offers from her entire class to help with props and prizes. Of course she quickly becomes overwhelmed. Eva finds herself in the position of having to ask her nemesis for help. Eva is afraid the other young owl will be mean to her. But, Eva's best friend points out that she can't control how another owl reacts; all she can do is ask for what she needs. A wonderful lesson! In the end, Eva also learns the value of teamwork just in time for her and her classmates to put on an awesome festival!
