A picture book (love?) story told in letters between a furry bookshop owner, an avid, if a bit cranky, feathered reader, and their forest friends
Owl just wants some peace and quiet to read his books—alone. But when the forest youngsters ruffle his feathers, he enlists the local bookshop owner to send him handpicked books to help cope with the chaos and the mess. It’s not long before Owl discovers Squirrel, and learns that just as important as solitude are companionship and community. Told entirely in letters, this charming picture book celebrates books and bookshops, letter writing and love.
Julie Falatko writes books for children. She likes to write about talking animals. And talking furniture. Sneakers, flowers, muffins, all talking. It’s like there’s nothing in her world she won’t slap a mouth on just to hear it blab. Julie is the author of the picture books Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book) and Snappsy the Alligator and His Best Friend Forever (Probably) illustrated by Tim Miller, (Viking Children’s), and Two Dogs in a Trench Coat Go to School (Scholastic). More books are coming! Julie lives with her husband and their four children in Maine, where she maintains the Little Free Library in front of their house. They also have a little dog named Cosmo and a big dog named Marlo.
