Publisher's Description

Out on a stargazing venture in this wordless picture book, Owly and Wormy discover that it’s fine to be frightened—but it’s better to be brave.

Owly and Wormy want to see the stars! So they gather their telescope and their lantern and head out into the dark night, all the way to the edge of their branch. Try as they might, though, they can only see leaves…and branches…and more leaves.

     But these two friends are not about to let a little obstacle like foliage stop them. Armed with camping gear, galoshes—and their wits, of course!—Owly and Wormy set out once again. And this time there are even bigger challenges to face. What’s that screee sound? What’s that click click clicking noise? And what has happened to their telescope?!

     Owly and Wormy find plenty to be frightened of, but with a little bravery, they also find there are nearly as many helpful new friends on the horizon as there are stars in the sky. This wordless picture book conveys a nuanced narrative with charming illustrations that will appeal to even the earliest readers.

Author Bio

Andy Runton has always loved to draw. After college, he began a career in corporate America, but left when he decided to follow his heart (and love of comic books). He hasn’t looked back. Andy’s artwork portrays his affection for wildlife, especially little birds. He says he is happiest when he’s outside under a big Georgia sky. He lives in the greater-Atlanta area where he works full-time on Owly comics, books, and graphic novels. Visit him online at AndyRunton.com.

Publishers Weekly

In Owly and Wormy’s second picture book, the unlikely companions (who first starred in a series of comic books) search for a way to see the stars through their telescope. Mostly wordless graphic novel–style panels in deep violets and greens show the friends embarking on a camping trip to get a good view (Owly’s tree house has too many leafy obstructions and other problems). Runton’s streamlined storytelling has the friends speaking in rebuses and images instead of words; when Owly gets lost in the woods, his thought bubble—joined by a question mark—is filled with four arrows pointing different ways. Bravery, inventiveness, and friendship factor strongly in a clever nocturnal adventure that’s a pleasure to decode. Ages 3–7. (Nov.) 2012 Reed Business Information

Editorial Reviews

* "The small owl with big eyes and equally outsized heart makes new friends on a nocturnal outing.

Discovering that their view of the sky has been blocked by tree leaves, Owly and his little vermiform housemate march out to set up their new telescope on a woodland hilltop. When heavy rains drive them into a cave that night, and eerie "Clickety skreeeeeeeee" noises send them scrambling back out, the telescope goes missing. This prompts Owly to screw his courage to the sticking place, leave his shivering buddy behind and set off on a search. As in Owly’s previous picture-book (Friends All Aflutter, 2011) and graphic-novel appearances, the tale is told in big, easy-to-grasp sequential cartoons, with wordless pictures and signs in balloons creating a nonverbal language that serves just fine in place of narration or dialogue. Owly returns in triumph with not only the telescope, but a set of friendly bats to explain the scary sound effects. In a final bit of both plot and emotional resolution, Wormy’s fear of the dark is transformed to delight as the camp’s candle is blown out, and the seemingly empty skies overhead suddenly blaze with stars.

Young readers and pre-readers alike will respond strongly to the tale’s elemental drama and clearly defined emotional arc."
