    "My daughter is obsessed with owls, and this book definitely didn't do anything to lessen that. Really though, it's a beautiful little story for kids. I enjoyed it almost as much as my kid did. A book that will be considered a classic soon, I'm sure."

    "Despite the gross title of this book (the cover of the book validates your reaction with a photo of an owl saying "yuck"), it is well-regarded by the Amazon readers who have reviewed it. Twice a day, an owl regurgitates the skeleton of a small creature it has previously eaten, which small skeleton is then studied in biology classes for young students. This book appeals to the kids who enjoy those types of classes. The price of this book begins at $2.24 for a large, colorful paperback, which is a bargain for the kids who are into science and into owls in particular."

    "The Capture, the first book in the series written by Kathryn Lasky, sets the tone for all the rest of the books to follow. It captivates its audience from the beginning. Both child and young adult readers will love this book about an owl. Follow the tale of the main character as he is pushed out of his nest and forced to figure out survival. Even as an adult I could appreciate the lessons throughout the book."

    "Gives an example that fits the description but a better example may have been an educational book about owls rather than a story about an owl."

    "There are other books with owls that might be suited to a varied audience. Nonetheless, this book is written very long ago and clearly some people have sought it out. However the link/solution provides no information about the story. "

    "As a nature lover, I was in love with this book. From the moment, Jackson, came to the farm, and started to display his personality, I was enamored. The illustrations in the book are also charming and give us a visual into Jackson's personality. I enjoyed this book personally from cover to cover, but it is also well written for younger readers who are fascinated by animals."

    "Usually don't like picture books, but I have an owl that hoots a bit just outside my window every so often. So I decided to pick this up and read it to my nephew, knowing the owl would start. Just thought I'd share that, but Owl Moon didn't really need anything extra. It's beautifully written, there's a lovely picture that accompanies just about each page of text. Just a great book to keep when your children ask for bedtime story."

    "Friendship is an important part of human life. We humans have come in a way that we cannot cope with difficulties or hardships in life without having someone whom we feel emotionally close and that we may rely on. Some tend to develop friendships with various species. They may range from animals to humans. One Man's Owl by Bernd Heinrich is an excellent depiction of how one can develop a sense of intimacy and explicit emotional connection to an animal being through no language or human communication schemes. The story has been developed in a fascinating way in this book and would capture the emotional side of its readers. Highly recommend to those who are pet lovers and want to boost their affection for them"

    "This is a book intended for younger readers so I bought it as a gift for my nephew. He seems to like it quite a bit even though he's not a huge fantasy fan. I think maybe that the book is turning him more towards fantasy though since he likes to tell me what is going on in the story. Sounds like a good book."

    "I can still remember that day in the natural-history museum when they brought out the live owl. From that point on, my Laura was obsessed with them and devoured everything I could get her (realistic or fantastic) on the subject. So I snatched this one up the day it was released, being familiar with the series. As expected, the characters are very well drawn and the writing style is just challenging enough for my 10-year-old. If there's anything to ding it for, it's that the Ga'Hoole Tree itself seems to be featured less and less as the series goes on, but it's all about the owls for my girl, so no problems here!"
