    My granddaughter really liked this book. Unusual story, all black and white illustrations.

    This book is startlingly clear in its message that treachery will not forever remain unpunished, and it goes about telling this story with stark and unfettered plainness. The pictures of the owl attack on the nefarious man are surprisingly graphic for a picture book, but Eve Bunting commands the attention of the reader with a strong writing style that is, to me, very reminiscent of Cynthia Rylant. "The Man Who Could Call Down Owls" certainly is not an easy book to forget.

    I wasn't keen on the story in the book, however I loved Charles Mikolaycak's wonderful owl illustrations, so it gets three stars instead of two because of that fact alone. I liked reviewer Josiah Jones' comment on the book, which was "This book is startlingly clear in its message that treachery will not forever remain unpunished".

    My son LOVES this book. It means so much to him on so many different levels. We read it over and over and each time, he adds something of his own to the story or retells it his own way. It's a beautifully illustrated book and every child should have this in their library!

    This is a melancholy story with black and white illustrations that have an old fashioned charm. It's a short story that really tells a dramatic tale in both pictures and words. Our oldest is a big fan of owls, so this was naturally a hit with her. We enjoyed reading this story together.

    While this wasn't a typical Eve Bunting book, I loved it all the same and even more so for the dark story and even darker illustrations by Charles Mikolaycak.

    There in the general collection was a signed copy of the book from June, 1985. The owls spot a fraud from their friend, Con. Black and white illustrations with blue borders frame the story.

    A melancholy yet hauntingly beautiful tale of tenderness and love. Charles Mikolaycak's intricate and beautiful illustrations rate 5 stars.

    This wasn't a "bad" picture book, but it's not one of my favorites. I typically love Eve Buntings books, but this one just didn't touch me like some of the others.
