This original and lighthearted book would find a welcome home on the shelf of anyone who loves birds, or anyone who likes the off-beat.

Matt Sewell has produced an amusing gem of a book with quirky watercolor pictures and tongue-in-cheek descriptions of several of the world's owl species. Of the Great Gray Owl, he says "with a head like a geodesic dome inhabited by a bunch of strung out hippies, the Great Gray Owl looks like he's been hanging out with these guys for some time." And the Eurasian Pygmy Owl is delightfully described as one who "bumbles around the woods hunting birds twice his size, like a pocket-sized politician after a liquid lunch."

Although this is more entertainment than field guide, you'll still walk away learning a few things (chuckling all the while).

Thank you to NetGalley and Ten Speed Press for a galley of this book in exchange for an honest review.
