The book i am going to tell about is Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech .This book is realistic fiction.The main character is Salamanca Hiddle . Sal (for short) is on a mission to see her mother who is in Lewiston,Idaho .Sal is traveling with her grand parents, Gram and Gramps. They started off in Euclid , Ohio and not all of them but some of them return to Lewiston in time for her mothers birthday. My favorite part of the book is when book is when Gram went to see Old Faithful and Gram went under the rope to get a closer look at it. My connection is once my grand mother went to see Old Faithful. I think that if you like adventure books i hope you will like, or love the book Walk Two Moons.

Fun Owl Fact: Their eyeballs are fixed in their sockets, which is why they've evolved to be able to turn their heads all the way around.

I probably thought of this because of D (above). *Hooo... Hoooo...*

Uh, let's not dwell on the reverse roles.  It's sad.

It's not just the difference in species of bird (swans and pheasants)... Pick up the books and find out!

 

And magic, of course. Hagrid is also much less delicate with his pink umbrella.

The main characters being Bone and Squirrel -- not to be confused with an actual bone and squirrel.  Hey! Bone and RIBsy... Darn, I wish I caught that earlier.
