The Owl Book, packed with stunning photography and interesting facts, is a must-have for owl lovers. The variety and unique characteristics of each species are explained, both those native to Britain and internationally, including the tawny, barn, snowy, long-eared, short-eared and little owl.

This includes some new poetry, a specially written short story from acclaimed writer Jackie Morris and an eclectic range of images of owls in paintings, print, sculpture, ceramics and even leather-work.
