PreSchool-Grade 2-- On a foggy coastline, a disoriented little owl repeatedly asks, " 'What is home?' " The answers that a wide variety of animals supply don't seem to help because he lacks the attributes the individual creatures use to define their milieu. Finally he discovers his mother and realizes that the tall grasses at the edge of the sea have been his home all along. The story relies on poetic cadence rather than action to hold listeners' interest in the familiar picture book situation. Hoopes succeeds in providing a soothing text that lends itself to quiet sharing. Richardson's oil paintings are equally calm, with dark tones and static figures. A pleasant addition to collections in which bedtime fare is in heavy demand. --Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University,
