5.0 out of 5 stars Really is Remarkable, 10 April 2012
This review is from: Wesley: The Story of a Remarkable Owl (Paperback)
If you are expecting a sweet and sentimental tale of an abandoned owlet, taken in and given a wonderful home by a kind and caring woman - then this is for you. If you just want sweet and fluffy, with no explicit detail of what and how owls eat or of how Stacey had to kill the mice that Wesley devoured herself then maybe it's not for you. Me? I devoured every page, every fine detail of life with this incredible creature. Nobody ever said that nature and wild creatures were not gory, or sometimes a little cruel, and this book brings home just how different humans and animals are. What it also does, is show the love that can be felt between the races too.

Stacey and Wesley lived together, not always in harmony for almost twenty years. Twenty years is a long time for an owl - it's almost 120 human years. During that time Wesley taught Stacey so much about wild owls and the bond that they developed was unbreakable. Wesley went everywhere with Stacey - even into the bath! They had their own special language, Wesley even tried to feed Stacey ...... with dead mice.

This book is subtitled 'The Story of a Remarkable Owl', I think it should have another line added and should read 'The Story of a Remarkable Owl, and a Remarkable Woman'.
