  • Wesley the Owl
  • by Stacey O'Brien
  • Price: $16.00

If you’re looking for a fun and informative summer-reading book, Wesley the Owl is just out in a paperback edition. On Valentine’s Day 1985, biologist and author Stacey O’Brien adopted Wesley, a baby barn owl with an injured wing. Over the next 19 years, O’Brien studied Wesley’s habits and watched him turn from a helpless fluff ball into an avid communicator with whom she developed a language all their own. When O’Brien develops a life-threatening illness, she is herself rescued from death by the insistent love and courage of this wild animal.
