Praise for Owl Diaries #1: "Appealing visuals (the text and art are set against the lined pages of Eva's diary), punny dialogue, a few pratfalls, and Eva's unflagging enthusiasm make for lively reading." -- Publishers Weekly
"This early chapter book is a nice step between first readers and series such as Barbara Parks's 'Junie B. Jones' and Mary Pope Osborne's 'Magic Tree House.'" -- School Library Journal
"The colorful, adorable illustrations will be irresistible to young readers. The simple text interspersed with speech bubble dialogue will engage beginning and intermediate readers alike. This appealing chapter book will be a nice addition to a library's young reader section." -- Library Media Connection
