Squib the Owl series, written and whimsically illustrated by Larry Shles, teaches self-esteem and personal and social responsibility as it entertains. The author uses the name Squib to personify the small vulnerable part of us all that struggles and at times feels helpless in an enormous world filled with emotions. This Series, five volumes, traces the adventures of this tiny owl as he struggles with his feelings searching at least for understanding. Each of the five titles explores a different vulnerability. MOTHS and MOTHERS, FEATHERS and FATHERS (explores feelings); HOOTS and TOOTS and HAIRY BRUTES (explores disabilities); ALIENS IN MY NEST (explores adolescent behavior); HUGS and SHRUGS (explores inner peace). The latest volume DO I HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL TODAY? is great for the young reader who needs encouragement from teachers who accept him "just as he is". Brilliantly simple, yet realistically complex, Squib personifies each and every one of us. He is a reflection of what we are, and what we can become. Every reader who has struggled with life's limitations will recognize his own struggles and triumphs in the microcosm of Squib's forest world - in Squib we find a parable for all ages from 8-80.Shles, Larry is the author of 'Adventure of the Squib Owl : Squib Ser.', published 1988 under ISBN 9780915190850 and ISBN 0915190850.
