Probably one of the most charming and relaxing comics I've read! To me it's like the Peanuts comics but with no words whatsoever! Good read (or ''eye-read''.. not sure what to call this, since there's no words but just symbols that Owly communicates with).. The art is very nice and cartoony and I think it works well in black-and-white.. If you're looking for a relaxing comic to read at night, then this is a good choice :)

I like how he didn't feel very well and then he felt better. I wish it had words.

The first volume focuses on stories of finding friends and understanding them. The panels are thorough so even without words it is easy to follow the story. Owly is very cute!
