bookshelves: fanciful, ya

These are kids' books, of course, so there's a certain amount of corniness and convenient plot fixes... But I still enjoy reading them -- they're adorable! The owls journey to the North, encountering owl pirates, monks, and polar bears, learning from Nordic warriors that speak "Krakish" to wield ice weapons. I enjoy Lasky's mixture of creativity and natural history, which while entertaining children, also teaches them a decent amount of zoology. And of course, you can read these in an evening; they're a fun break if you've just read something heavy.
