This is from my 11 year old daughter:
The Owlings is a fabulous book about a boy named Josiah, who is being faced with serious and real questions about life, which many others face today. I'm only 11, but in The Owlings, even I can see the great struggle against the beliefs of secular evolution and the People of God. To sum it up, it's is about young Josiah, when his farm is predicted to be destroyed and replaced by a highway. However, the real problem/question is that his temporary history teacher is teaching a new thing, evolution, to the class. To Josiah, this is a strange thing, but with his old life being taken away, it remains a lesser thing in his mind. It gets bigger, however, when 3 mysterious talking owls arrive to tell him what life is really about. The 4th owl is also very important, but in a different way. Josiah, in every way, will make the decision of his life in The Owlings. I like that in this book you get shown how important these decisions really are...
From my 11 (turning 12 year old son): "The owlings is a great inspirational story about world view that will cause young minds to truly feel the mind of main character, Josiah, as he struggles to understand and decide how he should view the world. With society as it is today, it's becoming more and more important to choose the right view for the world at an early age. A shorter but very enjoyable book, readers will be quite pleased with the quality of the read and the thoughts that it provokes."
I read this to my grandchildren ages 10 and 6. They could hardly wait for me to continue each time we stopped reading. We had good discussion and generally loved the whole book.
