Not yet a year old, Little Owl’s world is filled with wonder and joy. As Christmastime approaches, things begin to change. The town transforms, and Little Owl doesn’t know what to think. Workers threaten her existence as they saw away at her home; she decides Christmas can’t possibly be good. Pinned inside the fallen tree, she spends days famished and alone. Once rescued, she’s taken to a wildlife center with a kind woman and signs of holiday cheer. She nurses Little Owl back to health and returns her to the skies, but before she heads home, a delightful surprise awaits her in the city.

The Christmas Owl: Based on the True Story of a Little Owl Named Rockefeller is poignantly written and beautifully illustrated with vividly realistic images. Children ages five to nine will adore Little Owl and her curious mind as well as her courageous spirit. They’ll love following her through her long and tumultuous journey and will cheer when she finds liberty again. They’ll also take comfort in seeing her perception of Christmas transform and evolve into one more like their own. Additionally, they’ll be captivated to learn the text is based on the life of a real owl named Rockefeller.
