Owly

By Andy Runton

Honored by the Georgia Center for the Book as one of the 25 Books All Young Georgians Should Read!

"Charming."-- People Magazine

"Younger readers thrill to the wordless adventures of Owly."-- USA Today

"… the cutest comic you will ever see."-- Sean Scott, Mile High Comics

"Andy Runton may have created the single most charming graphic novel I’ve ever read. ... These stories will appeal to anyone who has ever experienced loneliness, heartache, true friendship or the sense of achievement one experiences when overcoming obstacles to do the right thing."-- Mike Bullock, Broken Frontier

Owly is a kind, yet lonely, little owl who's always on the search for new friends and adventure. The first graphic novel in the series contains two enchanting novellas, "The Way Home"& "The Bittersweet Summer,"wherein Owly discovers the meaning of friendship, and that saying goodbye doesn't always mean forever. Relying on a mixture of symbols, icons, and expressions to tell his silent stories, Runton's clean, animated, and heartwarming style makes it a perfect read for anyone who's a fan of Jeff Smith's Bone or Mike Kunkel's Herobear and the Kid.
