I absolutely LOVE the cover art, as I love barn owls. The cover is what drew me in to order the book. That, plus I enjoy the We'Moon calendars. Since I like the calendars, I thought this would be the same art & articles, but in a book format. Instead it was like a cut & paste of the calendars, & was choppy & didn't flow. If you just want to have access to some of the past calendar art & articles, it would probably be okay for you. But I wanted a book I could sit down & read, in more of a narrative style, while enjoying the art from the calendars.
