About the Book



"The story of a little owl who is found inside the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, her curiosity about what the holiday means, and her time spent healing with the woman who saved her life"--



Book Synopsis



The story that captivated the country about a little owl who was found in the world's most famous Christmas tree.

When Little Owl's home is cut down by people saying it will make a beautiful Christmas tree, she's not sure she wants anything to do with Christmas, whatever that means. But then she is saved by a woman named Ellen, whose house is merrily decorated for the holiday, and filled with birds who need someone to care for them. Surrounded by kindness and helpful new friends, Little Owl begins to wonder if Christmas might not be such a bad thing after all....

Co-written by Ellen Kalish, caretaker of the real owl found inside the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, The Christmas Owl is a charming story of friendship, compassion, and the true meaning of this special time of year.
