Wesley The Owl by Stacy O'Brien

Wesley the Owl is one of the cutest books I’ve ever read. When I heard about it, since I love Owls, I rushed out to get it, but then I realized I had to learn more about taking care of an Owl then I cared to. What made this story special is that it’s a love story about an Owl and his human....more
