Help us name the owl!


The owl was created by Ann Baker and Kyle Degraaf.


During a fundraiser for HAYC3, the winning bid went to Dr. Andrew Cowder.  His son, Andrew Tae Cowder, in turn donated the owl to Cheney Library. (2014)

Suggestions can be submitted until August 23rd. Five entries will be chosen and voted on.

He was extremely popular in the United States, South America and Europe. A push to bring his fame back began around 1990 and lots of his books are back in print in the English language.
