Format: Paperback
This warm, poignant, funny book is a wonderful demonstration of how even ONE person can help wildlife in trouble. Even better to think that little boy grew up to be a world-class advocate of animal and eskimo rights. Farley Mowat is a treasure. Thank heaven the grade school teacher at a school in Temple, Texas assigned Owls as a class project. Thank heaven the only book left in the library was "Owls in the Family." Farley Mowat has brought great laughter and poignancy to my family and is spoken of as a friend. We always say -- "Want to read a wonderful book (author) read "Owls in the Family" (Farley Mowat) !!

Our grandson's grade 4 teacher had this book read in class. The students made reports in their reading class.

Also, this book was easily read by 9 and 10 year olds.

So, I our grandson's Oma am reading it now!! I appreciate Mowat's homey writing style..

We gave him Never Cry Wolf for his 10th birthday.

Very simple story that is easy to follow. Fits perfect with our curriculum at school.
Action is nature related and true to life.

I needed it quick and Amazon didn't disappoint. The book had a very unique cover, with nice strong paper for the cover. I'm very satisfied.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By CanadianMother TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 1 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I tried reading Owls in the Family to my 8-year old daughter, one chapter per night as a bedtime story. From all the wonderful reviews the book had gotten I expected it to be a fun book for us to read together.

Personally, *I* thought the book was cute, if perhaps not funny, and I enjoyed Mowat's descriptions of the prarie terrain, but my daughter had no interest in the book whatsoever. We stopped part way into the third chapter because she was simply bored.

I don't think it's because the main characters are male--we've read other books with male characters that she loved. But the simple nature of the story--boys exploring the prairie, looking for pet owls--did didn't appeal to her. Not dramatic enough, perhaps.

So I thought I would write this review to warn parents that the story may appeal more to boys than to girls, although I'm sure there are exceptions to that.
