Owly: Just a Little Blue by Andy Runton

Just a Little Blue is the second book in the Owly comic series written by Andy Runton. Owly is a sweet owl who lives in the forest with his best friend Wormy and some other cute woodland creatures. The author uses very few words and mostly simple symbols and expressions to tell the story. At some points it may be a little difficult to follow the storyline, but readers who pay attention to the details will appreciate how the author tells it. It didn't take me long to finish this heartwarming tale, but in that short time I was totally pulled in! There is a wonderful lesson about friendship, but also forgiveness, sacrifice and bravery. This is a simple story that packs a big punch. Not as well done as my most recent comic favorite, Robot Dreams, but I definitely can't wait to read more Owly tales.
