Wormy’s imagination gets the better of him, and after being read a story about dragons, he sees dragons everywhere. But with the help of his friends and some factual information, he soon realizes the danger is only in his own mind. In fact, he becomes so brave, that when another creature is trouble, he is the first to respond. This all-ages graphic novel does indeed have something that will appeal to all ages as well as a lesson to ponder. ( )

Very sweet wordless tale that seems perfect for all sorts of applications at school for the kids who can't speak the language very well yet. It doesn't have very high entrance requirements and I like books that don't, that welcome all Finisheders. Perfect for class libraries even for older kids. ( )

Owl and his friends are nervous about the stranger in the forest because they fear it is the mean dragon from their story. In the end they learn that the Opossum is a kind, shy creature and they become friends.

With nearly no text to support the story, Owly and his friend Wormy discover there is someone new in their forest. They don't get off to a good start, but in the end they become friends.

Owly's back, as adorable as ever. This volume is a little harder to follow than previous stories, if only because Runton is presenting more complicated ideas in his pictorial speech. It's hard to get across "You put up this cage and now I'm stuck and can't get what I want and I'm hurt so I'm mad at you" when you don't have any text to work with.

Even more than the friend-positive, help-others-even-if-they're-mean-to-you message, this book is about cute. Really, really cute. I mean it. Runton may as well give up on telling stories and just draw his forest animals over and over, and I'd still buy his books for the sheer joy of seeing Owly, Wormy, and the rest of the crew. ( )

As always, it’s a recommended read for all ages, a quiet reminder of the virtues of friendship and doing one’s best and the rewards of caring for others.
