A father and child walk out on a cold, quiet, moonlit night with the hope that they'll catch a glimpse of an owl. Yolen's haunting prose and Schoenherr's fine pen and ink and watercolor paintings capture the wonder and the intimacy of a special occasion. Schoenherr's illustrations reflect the light of the full moon on a rural winter night. Winner, 1987 CCBC Caldecott Discussion. (Ages 4-7)
