Al loves owls. He reads books about owls, watches movies starring owls, and draws pictures of owls--he even sleeps with a stuffed owl. Al wishes he could be just like an owl instead of a kid His dream comes true at summer camp, where he gets lost on a hike and spends the night in the forest with a bunch of owls. But when Al gets hungry, he learns that owl life isn't all it's cracked up to be. Maybe being a kid isn't so bad after all.
