The Ghost, The Owl by Sara Richard Franco

This is a fascinating fantasy tale that captures your imagination.  When an owl finds a ghost, he doesn't know what to do...

Action Lab Entertainment and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 8th.

The ghost is not sure why she's there either and while they chat about that, the owl notices a man harassing the lady who had saved him when he was a baby.  She fed him, helped him heal, and then released him into the wild to live his life.  He helps her fight off the man.  This gets him in trouble with the leaders of the animal kingdom.  They don't want to mix with humans and think he shouldn't either.  He doesn't listen.

One point in his favor is that he has helped other animals all his life and asked nothing from him.  Now, they are willing to help him.

The illustrations are luscious and the story made me smile.  My animals have always protected me, too, so this story talked to me.  Maybe it might talk to you, too.

Story House by Kristen Balouch

I would have loved having this book as a child.  It's a board book of six pages and has over a hundred reusable decals. You can make you...
