Borden Watson goes to the giant redwood forest for one reason: to shoot spotted owls. They are the reason his dad has lost his job as a logger, and Borden hates them. But when he comes across a baby owl who has fallen out of its nest, Borden can't resist the tiny elf-like creature. And luckily, this owlet doesn't have spots, so it must be a barred owl-not the enemy. Borden takes the little owl home and names it Bardy. Before long, Bardy wins over each member of Borden's owl-hating family. Even his father pitches in to take care of the hungry owlet. But what will happen when they find out that Bardy is really a spotted owl? Award-winning nature writer Jean Craighead George weaves valuable ecological information into this heartwarming story of a family's love affair with a very special little owl. Young listeners will be fascinated as they learn about owls and their endangered forest habitat.

Author Bio: Jean Craighead George

Jean Craighead George (1919–2012) was born in a family of naturalists. Her father, mother, brothers, aunts, and uncles were students of nature. On weekends they camped in the woods close to their home near Washington, DC, climbed trees to study owls, gathered edible plants, and made fishhooks from twigs. In third grade she began writing—and went on to write over one hundred popular books for young adults and children, including the Newbery Medal–winning Julie of the Wolves and the Newbery Honor book My Side of the Mountain. Most of her books deal with topics related to the environment and the natural world.
