A very simple book, both in plot and illustration style. It's easy enough to follow, though it is driven more by dialogue than by action.

My kindergartner loved this book. She especially loved the friendship between Ollie and Bea and laughed out loud several times. Thank you NetGalley!

Well there are some well known benefits of reading books to your children like helping them engage , imagine and dream . It effects their vocabulary tremendously and gives me write words to express themselves . But one benefit which I have come to realize reading latest releases is that they tackle challenging topics in a easy fun way , the children can easily take away as much as they understand , and this proves to be a great help to parents with the conversations about these topics .

❤️Ollie and Bea , it’s owl good . Through a funny storyline , the book highlights the special qualities each and one of us have . It might be different from others , and that’s the beauty of it . Loved the storyline and illustrations.

We have read it multiple times for our 5 year old daughter , who finds it amusing and funny and we love it because it gives out a wonderful message of everybody  being unique in their own ways

Fun book graphic novel with cute illustrations throughout. It's about an owl who is having a hard time adjusting to wearing glasses and worried what others with think. It goes on to show not only should he not worry about other animals' opinions but that others worry about things about them as well. It's helps show how we shouldn't worry and how we all have great things about us. Love this for my daughter who just got glasses, and was worried about how kids would act seeing her.

This is a graphic novel for the younger crowd about being yourself and liking who you are. It is about an owl who has terrible eyesight except when using glasses. Then he becomes a superhero with super vision! it is also about a rabbit who cannot figure out what his superpower is and cannot understand why he has such big feet (I'm not going to tell you, it will spoil the ending). This is a wonderful story for children to read about finding out who they are and accepting who they are, foibles and all.

It's Owl Good is a charmingly illustrated book about an owl and a rabbit who take things they originally perceive as flaws that make them "other" and turn them into super powers. Great book for kids who are adjusting to wearing glasses and need a little encouragement.

Its Owl Good: The Super Adventures of Ollie and Bea is a short story about, well... Ollie and Bea! Ollie is struggling with the fact that he's an owl that needs glasses, and Bea is a bunny trying to make her feet look smaller. How can they turn themselves into superheroes? 

I loved how their insecurities are turned into superpowers. The story gives an important message to its target audience in a fun way. It's so well executed that I would definitely want to read and discuss this book with the kids I work with!

If you have super little human that loves super adventures, this will be the book for you to enjoy with with your super little human. Not only is this read about being super but it teaches what makes each of us unique. Owl and Bunny learn this together with humor, puns, and the love of words.

A special thank you to Capstone and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.

Sweet. Great graphic novel for younger readers about loving yourself and finding what makes you special.

Filled with lots of puns and humor, this graphic novel should delight early readers. Plus it carries a message of acceptance, not making jokes that could potentially hurt feelings, and recognizing that everyone has a superpower even if they don't realize it!
Owls usually have exceptional eyesight but not the owl in our story! He needs to wear glasses. And he's embarrassed. His feelings are hurt when two other animals tell a joke about glasses (it was not aimed at him and they don't realize he heard them). He takes his glasses off and promptly stumbles over bunny's feet! Which are pretty big. They help each other figure out that what they first thought of as a negative quality is really a big positive! And they make a few new friends along the way. 
There are TONS of puns and humor and the message comes across in a not-too-didactic way. I look forward to reading other Ollie and Bea adventures.
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for an eARC!

Don't we all want superpowers?  This book reminds us that everyone already has them. Great dynamic in characters.

This review will be short, and I want to tell you that I loved this book and would read this story to my little nieces and nephews.

It’s Owl Good by Renée Treml is an adorable story about an Owl named Ollie who wears glasses and is insecure about how others see him. Still, with the help of Bea, a super-nice bunny, who has her struggles, they help each other accept their differences and what makes them unique and beautiful.

It is a beautiful little book that sends a good message and is great for kids to read. I finished it in 15 minutes, and it’s just all kinds of adorable and funny. The dialogues are simple, full of cute puns and the illustration is just as good as the story. It is absolutely delightful!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

"It's Owl Good" by Renee Treml is a great book for young readers (think 6-9 years old). It is super cute, easy to understand, with some challenge as well that kiddos who are learning to read, but a little further along in their progress will be able to read independently, or for a read aloud with kindergarten age children as well.. I will definitely be purchasing this for my friend who is a 1st grade teacher when it becomes available in a finished copy!

*I received a digital ARC of this book, thanks to NetGalley*
This book is part of a series called, "The Super Adventures of Ollie and Bea", and I found myself wanting to read more of the series.  I didn't feel like I was missing anything by not having read the other books.  The illustrations were lovely and simple, not too cluttered, which helped in making the message the focal point of the story.  I think this would be a great book for kids who may feel self-conscious about the things that set them apart, or things that make them feel "weird" or "not normal".  In the end, we can take those things that we might not like and turn them into superpowers!
The only criticism for this book that I have is the chapter titles.  While the titles were adorable (Squirrelock Holmes!), I was a little confused about why this book was broken up into chapters at all.  The story seemed (to me) to be one continuous story in one continuous period of time.  Did I misunderstand this?  
Overall, I thought this was a wonderful book, I look forward to catching up on the other books in the series.

This is a simple, easy graphic novel. It's a good book for kids learning to read independently. The text is on the simple side, scattered throughout with puns, and the font is easy to read. There is lots of white space so that kids don't get too distracted while reading. The art is fine but not really eye-catching. I found it overall a bit boring.

Wow this is such a cute and necessary book. I loved it.

Having to wear glasses at an young age can really make children struggle not only because of their own perception but also the way people, especially other kids, see them. So having this book that has such a nice message will be a relief for the parents and the kids. 

It’s a really adorable story about an Owl named Ollie who needs glasses, throughout the book Ollie struggles with the way people see him, they all assume Owls have good vision and are surprise about his glasses, as it’s imaginable it really affects his self steam, but with the help of Bea a cute bunny, who has her own struggles, they help each other to accept their differences and rise to became extraordinary.

The little puns were so cute, definitely a great addiction, I really recommend this book. 

Thank you netgalley and the publisher for this arc in exchange of a honest review
