A young girl has been waiting a long, long time to go owling with her father, and tonight, a beautiful, moonlit night, is the night. Muffled against the cold, the father and daughter clump through the immaculate white snow, illuminated by the moon to appear "whiter than the milk in a cereal bowl."

Although it's icy cold, they never say a word. Finally, her father stops and gives out a great horned owl's call. Will an owl answer?

Bestselling author Jane Yolen based the two characters on her own daughter and husband. Artist John Schoenherr won the Caldecott Medal for his wonderful watercolor paintings. Translated into more than a dozen foreign languages, this poetic picture book is a wonderful choice for nighttime reading.
