Hoot! Hooray for little owls! I'm so excited to be working with Virginia on this project.  :partytime Blueboard parties are the best!

 From Publishers Weekly.

 "Virginia Duncan at Greenwillow has acquired two picture books by Too Purpley! author Jean Reidy; the stories feature Specs, a not-so-clear-sighted young owl who explores the world with his friends. Book one is scheduled to release in summer 2016; Erin Murphy at Erin Murphy Literary did the deal for world rights."
