The fourth graphic novel in the award-winning, all-ages series, tells of a new visitor to the forest. He may be misunderstood because of how he looks, but things aren't always what they seem, and everyone soon learns that a little bravery and a lot of friendship can fix just about anything. Relying on a mixture of symbols, icons, and expressions to tell his silent stories, Andy Runton's clean, animated, and heartwarming style makes it a perfect read for anyone who's a fan of Jeff Smith's Bone or Mike Kunkel's Herobear and the Kid. Already winning fans around the world, Owly is not to be missed. -- 128-Page Graphic Novel, 5 1/4" x 7 1/2", Diamond: FEB073809
