Slap the words "graphic novel" somewhere on the cover, and you can get me to read the weirdest shit.

This is a fact book about owls decorated with pictures that range from beautiful to ugly to what the hell is that???? (Audubon it ain't.) The words can be difficult to read at times, but once deciphered they will gift you with some nifty tidbits of knowledge.

I'm just not sure I'd call it a graphic novel though...

Read in one sitting because I love owls. The thick Sharpie handwriting was hard to read in a few spots, but the mixed media comics were beautiful. A quick and fun read.

Wow I love this comic. It's so many beautiful portraits of different kinds of owls and so full of interesting facts about owls. But most of all, the book just draws you in. There is a page just of a painting of birch trees and I find myself staring at it every time I pick up the book. I think a part of me believes that if stare I long enough, an owl will fly from the center of that birch forest. It's a very enchanting comic.
