    • My son and I read this book through an online school. It is required reading for the kids to discuss and learn from. Solomon Owl lives in Pleasant Valley. He doesn’t seem to have a lot of friends and sees others as food. This book follows Solomon on his dealings with other characters, finding a home, discovering new things to see in the world and on the farm. My son and I found Solomon to not be such a nice character. He is rude. He knows he's rude but he doesn't care. He's also antagonistic. [...]


    • Not as likable a character as I thought he'd be, Solomon Owl was a bit prickly, but still endured experiences that cause a young mind to remember. Written for young readers.
