    This is the first chapter book I ever read to myself It s also the first book I ever readthan once It s one of those things that, should there be a natural disaster, I m taking it with me.

    I read this when I was young, maybe when I was seven Years passed and I forgot its name, but the story stayed with me as a grew up I reread it when I was 23 when I finally bought it for my collection Gwinna pretty much helped shape the person I grew up to be.

    This lovely, strange fantasy is one of my favorites A childless couple is given a magical child by the Mother of Owls, a girl with wings Despite their efforts to hide her wings, the times comes when she must fly away to find her destiny.The illustrations are hauntingly beautiful The sad thing is that this masterpiece is out of print, and disappearing from library shelves as copies get worn out If you can find it, read it If you come across it at a used bookstore, buy it

    I read this book when I was ten or so I ve thought about it many times since then, but couldn t ever remember the name I ve looked for it and asked people about it, but no one ever knew what I was talking about it Today I did some furious googling, and after nearly an hour, I finally found it and feel like crying This is one of the most beautiful stories I ve ever read I m buying a copy right now I can t wait to hold it and read it and see the illustrations again.

    This book is one of a kind Beautiful pictures and a story that is unexpected in its profundity In books like these, I think I come to expect that when the initial tension is resolved, then everything will be happily ever after That is the usual formula But in this story, tension follows tension as Gwinna becomesandherself And it isn t easy The story is told with compelling simplicity.

    A stunning book that has stayed with me ever since my 5th 6th grade teacher read it aloud to us The story was so moving to me as a child, and after briefly forgetting about it as an adult, I suddenly had something tickle my memory and then became absolutely determined to find it to share with my then 5 year old daughter I had a difficult time finding it to purchase as I think it may be out of print now, but I did find a used copy online, and promptly bought it for us to read together Turns ou A stunning book that has stayed with me ever since my 5th 6th grade teacher read it aloud to us The story was so moving to me as a child, and after briefly forgetting about it as an adult, I suddenly had something tickle my memory and then became absolutely determined to find it to share with my then 5 year old daughter I had a difficult time finding it to purchase as I think it may be out of print now, but I did find a used copy online, and promptly bought it for us to read together Turns out, she ended up loving it as much as I did Definitely a special book with some of the most incredible illustrations I ve ever seen in a children s book I will save this book and continue to treasure it as part of my collection
