Knight Owl | Christopher Denise

In this children‘s historical fantasy picture book, a small but plucky owl realizes his dream and becomes a knight. There‘s plenty of foreshadowing—dragon imagery is on almost every page—until Owl comes face to face with a massive dragon. Funny, sweet and inspiring. A Caldecott Honor recognizes the charming art, which rewards careful examination to find jokes and surprises. #kidlit

Knight School was hard, but Owl worked and worked. He graduated with honor, as all knights do.

Can you see what mom is making for dinner? The dead mice on the trencher make up for the gender stereotypes in this illustration. I loved the book, don't get me wrong. Owl is clever and adorable.

MuddyPuddle Will we find out Monday that it was honored with a Caldecott, do you think? 1w
mandarchy @MuddyPuddle That would be really cool. The illustrations are really wonderful. The pizza made me hungry. It's almost a gazing book, there are a ton of look-closelies. Just in this image you can read clues on dad's newspaper. It is making me go back and find other books by Denise.

I'm not usually a fan of #fantasy or #dragons. But so far, I've really enjoyed the first two books of this #series. I just have to pace myself reading the next 8, or I'll get #dragon #burnout!

Unfortunately our US trip and summer holidays interrupted the flow a little - Trix and I had about 20 minutes to go before we left and then struggled to regain the narrative thread when we did many to finish 6 weeks later. It is a good fantasy series, however, in the vein of Tolkien but slightly less complex. Eragon and Safira are interesting heroes and I look forward to seeing how their saga plays out.

Let the kiddos have screen time so I can start on the second book in The Inheritance Cycle. I love rereading this series. I need to see if my local thrift store has the fourth book, so I can complete the collection.

I'm putting off housework to read and fill out my book journal. It's not fancy, but just keeping track of my chapters keeps me motivated.

This year will be filled with reading this series, The Wheel of Time series, and the four secret project books from Brandon Sanderson. Here's hoping by the end of all that, I'll be an expert swordsman.

My #bookspin pick was this excellent early-reader fantasy tale. Simple reading in a beginner chapter book that encourages nuanced thinking.
