Baker & Taylor
On a slightly scary camping trip to study stars in the night sky, Owly and Wormy make new friends.

& Taylor

Venturing outdoors at night to stargaze, Owly and Wormy are challenged by overgrown foliage, scary noises and the loss of their telescope before making helpful new friends and learning to face their fears, in a wordless storybook by the creator of Owl & Wormy, Friends All Aflutter!

Simon and Schuster
Out on a stargazing venture in this wordless picture book, Owly and Wormy discover that it’s fine to be frightened—but it’s better to be brave.

Owly and Wormy want to see the stars! So they gather their telescope and their lantern and head out into the dark night, all the way to the edge of their branch. Try as they might, though, they can only see leaves…and branches…and more leaves.
     But these two friends are not about to let a little obstacle like foliage stop them. Armed with camping gear, galoshes—and their wits, of course!—Owly and Wormy set out once again. And this time there are even bigger challenges to face. What’s that screee sound? What’s that click click clicking noise? And what has happened to their telescope?!
     Owly and Wormy find plenty to be frightened of, but with a little bravery, they also find there are nearly as many helpful new friends on the horizon as there are stars in the sky. This wordless picture book conveys a nuanced narrative with charming illustrations that will appeal to even the earliest readers.

This wordless picture book is great for a discussion one-on-one or with a group of youngsters. As you talk about what's going on in the story, the children's background knowledge kicks in. You can ask them questions like, "have you ever camped outside in the stars? What was it like in the woods? Have you ever used a telescope to look at the stars? What do you have to bring to go camping?" This book is perfect for parents to lead a conversation to their young adventurers!

I like owly because owly has no words and it is good for Kindergarten kids because it has no words. It only has pictures. I really like owly and I also like wormy. :-)

This author is soooo talented. There are no words to this story (wordless picture book) it's done just like his graphic novels (totally check them out!) And it's just gosh darn cute! Owly and wormy want to see the stars, but a few obstacles and fears stand in their way, but it's a happy ending of a starry night and new friends!
