All-ages favorite OWLY is now available for the Kindle book reader (story here). If you haven’t read any of the Eisner award winning OWLY books, they are about a little owl making friends with forest creatures such as worms, hummingbirds, and raccoons. The deceptively simple black and white art and lack of text dialogue make this perfect for even the littlest kids, but adults love it just as much. On the cuteness scale of zero to 10, this one goes to 11; it will steal your heart and leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy for days.

Don’t forget, Andy and his mom Patty (a teacher) have put together a fantastic book of lesson plans for using OWLY in the classroom. The 12 language arts and visual arts lessons are adaptable for all grade levels and feature plenty of Runton’s heartwarming art.
