A heartwarming and whimsical story about the connection between humans and nature, and the magic of Christmas.

Merry has always wanted to go on a grand adventure, like the great Hero Owls from her favorite stories. But she is just a little owl. Little owls don't have adventures. Then one day, Merry falls asleep in her favorite tree—and wakes up in a big, noisy city! Can a little owl on a grand adventure find her way home?

Perfect for city kids and nature lovers alike, Merry and Hark is a cozy read at Christmas and all year round.
