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.


A diary keeper, a journalism major, a public relations executive, and a children's author-Lindsay Leslie has always operated in a world of written words. She likes to bring her unique outlook on life, quirky humor, and play with words to every book she writes. Lindsay is the author of multiple picture books, including This Book is Spineless, Nova the Star Eater, and Dusk. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband, two boys, two fur-beasts, a guinea pig, and a tortoise.


Julie Falatko is a children's book author. She lives with her family in Maine, where she maintains a Little Free Library in front of their house. This is her first book for Cameron Kids.

By purchasing a book from BookPeople, you are not only supporting a local, independent business, but you are also showing publishers that they should continue sending authors to BookPeople.
