Story Time with Ms. Aleina: Knight Owl


Ms. Aleina with the Adair County Public Library reads "Knight Owl," by Christopher Denise, for Story Time.

Since the day he hatched, Owl dreamed of becoming a real knight. He may not be the biggest or the strongest, but his sharp nocturnal instincts can help protect the castle, especially since many knights have recently gone missing. While holding guard during Knight Night Watch, Owl is faced with the ultimate trial--a frightening intruder. It's a daunting duel by any measure. But what Owl lacks in size, he makes up for in good ideas.
