Two more starred reviews for Owen Jester!

That makes THREE (but who's counting?).

School Library Journal; starred review:

This well-crafted novel creates a charming mix of the commonplace and the extraordinary….Appealing and authentic, this tale of summertime adventure will be a hit with readers year round.

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books; starred review:
O’Connor masterfully twists the two plot threads….[and] fashions a geography of childhood freedom.
