Comments The Happy Owls

    Motto for life: find happiness around you.


  • The Littlest Library

    "You can draw an Owl a thousand times, and never find out it's secret." - Celestino Piatti 1992Owls are fantastic. It is not until reading this beautiful work that it occurred to me that owls appear in so many great childrens' works; 'Harry Potter', 'The Gruffalo', 'Winnie the Pooh' and Lear's rhyme 'The owl and the pussy cat' to name just a handful. They are graceful and dignified birds and oddly, in real life the owl is very rarely seen by children. I think it is this mystique that surrounds t [...]

  • Stefani Sloma

    The theme of this children’s book is to see the beauty in everyday life and in nature.You can also read this review and others on my blog, Caught Read Handed.I love owls. Love them. I even have an owl tattoo. So obviously when I saw this book at the library, I checked it out. What a lovely story!The Happy Owls is about two owls that are inexplicably happy – inexplicable at least according to the chickens, ducks, and geese who live nearby. They decide to send the peacock over to find out why. [...]


  • Claire

    a beautiful picture book, from 1963 reissued in 2013. The original story goes back to the nineteenth century. Dutch artist Theo van Hoijtema wrote the words and drew the pictures for this fable. It was translated into German by Erwin Burckhardt, and he suggested Celestino Piatti draw the illustrations for the new edition. Piatti depicted the owl often - it appears in all seven of his picture books. His style - black outlines and vivid colors - is unmistakable. The owls in the books are approache [...]


  • Christine Turner

    This is a classic text about enjoying the miracle of every day life. Originally published in 1964, it is being reissued, a testament to Piatti's distinctive artwork. He is particularly known for his innovative use of fonts. Why are these owls so happy? That's just what the chickens, ducks, and geese want to know. But when they send a peacock over to find out why, they're incredulous at reply. How could anyone be happy simply to see the rain and sunshine? What could be so joyful about the flowers [...]


  • Rima Aroutiounian

    The owls never quarrel, no wonder. They find beauty and happiness in everything. These two owls never fight and the animals near by quarrel all the time after eating and drinking. The peacock notices and asks why they never fight. The owls tell the animas how they find beauty in every season and everything else that comes with it. Great story for developing narrative skills, because the story goes on from one season to another in order.


  • Bethany

    Beautifully illustrated book about two owls who have found happiness in their lives. When they share their secret with the nearby farm fowl, the farm birds pish-posh their views and head back home. But the owls are happy and comfortable with their worldview and return to their own happiness. There is a lovely endnote on the original author of this fable as well as on this version of the story.


  • Beverly

    Large, colorful watercolors with bold black outlines enhance this picture book story of two owls who live in peace with each other. Unfortunately, the barnyard fowl do not understand the owls' reasons for happiness, and so continue their contentious life styles. This book would make a good story time book on owls, or on peace.


  • Mona Al-kazemi

    The birds want to know the secret behind the two owls' happiness, and the owls give an answer that includes a description of the four seasons. It's a nice read, but the answer given by the owls does not match the initial portrayal of them as staying all the time in their place.


  • Abby

    This is a simple fable that teaches us to be content with our lives, instead of being conceited and proud. The illustrations are simple, with a stylized elegance. The owls are adorable (it's almost worth reading just to see them)!


  • Kendra

    Lovely. Happiness comes in different ways to different creatures.


  • Lisa Mcbroom

    Wy are the owls so happy wonder the quarreling farm animals. The owls tell them a quiet mysterious story of the seasons.


  • Elizabeth

    This pair of wise owls attempt to teach the (foul) fowls that being happy is being appreciative of nature and the seasons.Even the youngest among us understand the message of this book.


  • Leigh

    I like the illustrations but the message is a bit pedantic.


  • Casandria

    Never for story time. Beautifully illustrated but not a great story at all


  • Lindsay

    I love the mid-century illustrations and appreciate the quiet message about how to be happy in the barnyard of life.


  • Danielle

    Gorgeous book from the 60s and is about being happy by noticing the seasons and simple things.


  • Elisabeth

    Very Zen. I think this would make a pretty fantastic wedding shower gift!
