Jane Yolen, illustrated by Anna Wilson
From Jane Yolen, the author of the Caldecott Award–winning book Owl Moon, comes a friendship story about a bird-loving boy who meets a bird-loving girlNew in town and shy to boot, bird-loving Jon loves nothing more than to listen for the tappity-tap-tap of a woodpecker, the caw-cawing of crows, the cries of jays, the coos of the doves, and especially the hoots of owls. One night an owl calls, and when Jon calls back, it answers! But what Jon thinks is a bird is actually a bird-loving girl, and that’s when he discovers the best sound yet: that of a friend.
