Adopted by an Owl: the True Story of Jackson the Owl

Ever wonder what it would be like to live with an owl? Written and illustrated by veteran animal rehabilitators, Adopted by an Owl: the True Story of Jackson the Owl by Robbyn Smith van Frankenhuyzen reveals the trials and joys of raising a great horned owl. Stolen from his nest and rejected by his owner, Jackson is driven to a farm and becomes an integral part of the family. It’s amazing to read of Jackson’s interactions with “Nick” (also the illustrator), his healing process, and his eventual decision to stay on the farm. What’s more, the story takes place in Michigan. A wonderful book to share for all ages. Illustrated by Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen.
