Review:

A small owl with a penchant for drama relies on his gift for disguise to catch his dinner…but the rabbit isn't fooled by the carrot with big eyes, the lamb knows its own mother and the pigeon doesn't think much of the odd-looking bird bath. What's a very hungry little owl, who can "swoop through the bleak blackness like a wolf in the air," to do? Author Sean Taylor offers a comical solution (pizza is involved), complemented by witty touches in illustrator Jean Jullien's bold shapes and colors.
