I think this was a good book also. I don't like reading that much, but Jack Brown was right: a reader who doesn't like reading will like this book, because I sure did. The book is about saving some owls, but not just any owl-- a Burrowing Owl. A Burrowing Owl lives underground in holes. A boy named Roy moves to Florida from Montana and meets two kids named Beatrice and Mullet Fingers. They are trying to save some owls that are going to be bulldozed. If the three don't save them the owls are going to die! This book is funny and strange, and I think YOU should read this book.
