Review:

FROM KIRKUS REVIEWS: 

"Simple rhyming text describes owlet’s initial reluctance to fly, his mama’s firm encouragement and the resulting nocturnal adventure. . . Modarressi’s talent with watercolors elevates this sweet bedtime tale above the many titles of this ilk. Owlet’s eyes convey his every emotion—worry, fear, surprise, relief and joy. Skillful layering of color conveys the bird’s swooping movements, while sharply drawn details of the creatures contrast nicely with the softer natural backgrounds, including the sky that ranges from inky blue to purplish pink. Preschoolers are sure to enjoy this cozy story and cheer for Owlet" 
FROM BOOKLIST:

"The rhyming text tells Little Owlet’s story simply, while the watercolor paintings depict his world in simplified forms and muted colors. . . the double-page paintings portray Owlet’s neighborhood at night as an intriguing and, somehow, comforting landscape. An encouraging bedtime book for the many young children who fear the dark and dream of independence."
FROM SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL:

"Modarressi’s soft-focus watercolors capture the excitement of Owlet’s success and the beauty of a late summer’s night."
