Review by Kris

Owly is a kind-hearted owl who cares for all those around him. His best friend is a worm and he associates with many fun characters in the place where he lives. He has many adventures like entering the ultimate birdbath contest, to helping his many friends out of all kinds of trouble. This is a collection of comics that Andy Runton published for free comic book day at conventions and out of print collections of tales.

Owly is a new type of hero. He may not be fighting crime, cleaning up evil, and those types of things, but Owly does put others before himself. He is adorably drawn and all of the other animals that inhabit the town that Owly lives in are so cute and cuddly you just want to snuggle with them. There are lessons that can be learned from this book and can help start great conversations between kids and their parents. In a world where the self is valued before the welfare of others Owly shows us that life is much more fulfilling when you help others.

There aren’t any words in this comic and it is a title that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults. This is the fifth book in a series of many Owly tales. I enjoyed this book immensely and want to check out the other books in the series. Owly: Tiny Tales is endearing from beginning to end and can be enjoyed by all!
