OWL FUN BOOK FOR SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL
Volume 10 Number 4.
I wish I were a kid again and had this book to while away my idle hours. The possibilities are endless. On a warm and sunny day, I might check out a wasp's nest (at a respectable distance, of course), design a sundial, or start a garden. The rain would never stop me, for I could watch a stalk of celery blush, build a boat with Dr. Zed, or even try to solve a famous Lewis Carroll puzzle. The Mighty Mites would be on hand as I ate my breakfast cereal; when bedtime rolled around, Monica Hughes, Canada's answer to Steven Speilberg, would tell her tale of a lost Starchild. And all the year round I would never be bored, because this is the perfect companion to The Winter Fun Book.* Remember all the good things you have ever read about Owl Magazine and its True Adventure series? Miracle or miracles, they continue to hold true. Any library with eight to twelve year olds at large should have a copy within reach.
*Reviewed vol. IX/2 1981 p.110.
