Book Review, “Owls: Our Most Charming Bird,” Matt Sewell author

owls coverOwls: Our Most Charming Bird, by Matt Sewell, is indeed a most wonderful book for owl fans. In his introduction, Sewell describes owls as “tough, wise, spooky, scary, majestic, austere, spiritual, easy to draw, inspirational, and cute.”

The book is divided into four sections, each with a different category of owls. Within these categories: woodland owls, tropical owls, wilderness owls, and desert owls, there are many other owls. Some of these are barn owl, little owl, striped owl, collared scops owl, long-whiskered owlet, brown fish owl, snowy owl, great gray owl, jungle owlet, great horned owl, elf owl, and the brown wood owl. For each owl, Sewell has written a short description and included a hand-drawn illustration.

I enjoyed this book. Its illustrations are incredible and the written descriptions, while short, give enough information about each owl to make it intriguing. This is a wonderful book. I would recommend it to anyone who loves owls!


I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
