|Review Quote*||Praise for Owl Diaries #1:|
"Bright and colorful digital illustrations, large type, frequent speech bubbles and a familiar story make this accessible to emerging readers.â€¦This series promises to fill a niche for [new readers. Keep flapping, Eva!" -- Kirkus
"Appealing visuals (the text and art are set against the lined pages of Eva's diary), punny dialogue, a few pratfalls, and Eva's unflagging enthusiasm make for lively reading." -- Publishers Weekly
"This early chapter book is a nice step between first readers and series such as Barbara Parks's 'Junie B. Jones' and Mary Pope Osborne's 'Magic Tree House.'" -- School Library Journal
