I love Owly!
Communicating mostly in images, this wordless graphic novel is simply adorable.
I had not read any of the other Owly volumes before this one, so there may be some backstory I missed, but I did not feel at all lost as I followed Owly's journey to a friendship with a flying/gliding creature (squirrel, I think) and his own eventual "flight."
Owly is a friendship story, and the characters do not have to say one word for readers to relate.
