    I don t know how true these memories are, but they are my memories, so they are true enough for this Around 34 or 35 years ago, I went into my elementary school library and talked to Mrs Dogleash surely Mrs Dalgliesh, like the famous Liverpool footballer and manager, but we always thought of her as Dogleash I needed a book She gave me Owls in the Family I remember the orange gold shag carpet of my bedroom where I sat and read in the evening I remember a flashlight and my crocheted blanket the on [...]

    I remembered loving this book from when I was a kid My sister s favorite animals were owls, so we were in awe of Farley s family who had two pet owls After looking around for this book in the library, I finally ordered it off It was so worth it It was a quick read of 3 sittings and all three of my kids loved it and we all laughed and laughed I ve liked most of Farley Mowatt s books, but I ve never read his most famous book Never Cry Wolf Someday I ll get to that.

    I read this book to my son, who is 8, for a book report he needed to do for school I d heard the book recommended often throughout my years of homeschooling, but never gotten around to actually reading it I m so glad I did We both thoroughly enjoyed it My son, in particular, enjoyed reading about boys who love the outdoors, like he does although he has much less accessibility to wild space than they did The book tells how Billy, the main character, and his friends Bruce and Murray, come across a [...]

    I struggled between three and four stars on this one It s an interesting tale, but for the most part, it s one of those children s books where each chapter is a separate adventure, and that s generally not my cup of tea I ultimately went with four stars regardless since this book is just so readable and entertaining too.

    This book made me miss my dad It s the true story of a boy who raises two owls and the various adventures they have together It both reminded me of him, and reminded me how much he enjoyed animal stories I love that this book is still on our library s Battle of the Books list It is so not politically correct and I loved for that I loved that the father claimed he was going to give his son a whopping, that they dressed the owls in doll clothes for a pet parade, that the father guns down as many c [...]

    This was such an entertaining family read aloud My children ages 5 and 7 were laughing so hard at the owls antics I highly recommend this charming book.Just a note that the book may not be suitable for extra sensitive children since some animals baby owls, cats, crows die.

    Read this several years ago, and I remember liking it I read it with a group of kids when I was working as a paraeducator.

    Karen

    Just finished reading this book to a grade 4 5 class by far my favourite chapter book read aloud experience ever We ve been reading one chapter each week during library class for the past couple of months, and it quickly became something that the students, their teacher, and I looked forward to each week We laughed so much throughout the entire book and were totally engrossed in every crazy, exciting chapter At the end of the book, they all said This can t be the end Is there a sequel Such great [...]

    If I was a kid reading this I d give it stars, although kids today may take umbrage at the same parts I did steeling wild animals and their eggs and killing wild animals for fun Aside from those parts it was a fun read.

    Emily Suddath
    This is such a hilarious little book What made it better is I found out it was based on the author s childhood wow, what a childhood This was part of my son s first grade read aloud reading, but as an adult I was literally laughing out loud at the escapades.

    Mike
    This book was hilarious I would have loved it if it were set anywhere, but who doesn t love getting to say Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

    Lexi
    This little book is a hoot.

    Althea Floge
    This is a great, quick, easy read Farley Mowat, I hope I spelled that right, is like my go to author when I don t have a book to read, and this was just one of those books.

    Friends gave this to me years ago, and I finally got to reading it during my recover from surgery weeks spent sitting around This is one of Mowat s early books, written before Never Cry Wolf the one he s most famous for It s or less a juvenile, written from the point of view of a boy of somewhere between 10 and 13 and meant to appeal to boys that age However, in the 21st century, I doubt that vision of boyhood would be at all recognizable to boys that age even in rural areas, childhood isn t li [...]

    Description So Supposing you lived in a town on the Canadian prairie Then supposing you had a chance to take home a couple of orphaned great horned owls Then, supposing said owls grew to full size, liked to nibble on people s ears, teased your dog, fought with skunks yup during dinner , followed you to school, climbed trees and couldn t fly What a summer that would be It s unpredictable It s funny And it s all true Concerns None.Summary Maybe my personality has biased my outlook, but who wouldn [...]

    Re read as a tribute to Farley Mowat on the day that he died I loved this book as a child and it holds up surprisingly well Mowat is a gifted and talented writer, and his work is both simple and descriptive I also loved the references to Saskatoon he refers to the railroad bridge and Spadina I just learned that Farley Mowat had a column in the Saskatoon Star Phoenix when he was 13 years old.When I was small, I was convinced that this book was a true story I only discovered last night that it s a [...]

    Mowat s Owl story is, in my memory, a quick read sequel to Mutt s story Decades after first reading it, the memory of the hilarious scene with the garage mechanic, the owls and goggled dog in the Mowat family car s rumble seat still brings a smile If you have an interest in owls, I suggest adding this to your TBR.The Dog Who Wouldn t Be

    Tori
    So, this book is cute and easy to read The problem I had with it was it s supposed to be humorous, but I found it a little bit sad I don t know if I m just weird that way or what, but other people would probaby enjoy it

    Abby
    Required reading in grade school, this episodic story is one I never forgot I just love the style and tone of this quick read and I wish there was a snazzy re print so I could hand this one out to families like candy.

    Michael Stewart
    So full of wonderful references and details I think the best word for it is Delightful Perfect for the 9 10 year old in your life It also recalls a free parenting world in which kids could just be kids RIP Mr Mowat

    Shawne
    Delightful I want a baby owl.

    Shannon
    A nice story that opened up some discussions about animals and respecting their environment The owls were funny and provided a lot of laughs My son didn t like the ending though.

    Cathy Wagner
    This is a fun class read aloud It was written in 1961, we had fun comparing a child s life then and now The animals antics sparked a lot of laughter.

    Josh
    Read this as a kid, and just re read for fun I was hoping I d like it just as much, and I did Can t wait to read it to our kids in a few years.

    Megan A Barefoot Gal
    This book is hilarious One of the few books that I ve actually laughed out loud at.

    DeB MaRtEnS
    One never to be forgotten, even though Farley Mowat may have created most of his true stories Memorable, adorable and beloved.
