No Ordinary Owl

No Ordinary Owl by Lauraine Snelling and Kathleen Damp Wright is part of a series about the S.A.V.E. Squad. That's a group of girls whose names start with the initials, S, A, V and E. They try to rescue and help animals.

I was surprised to see that Lauraine Snelling was a co-author of this book. While Snelling has written other books for kids, they're all about horses and only one book in this series is about that kind of animal. I have a feeling Ms Wright will go on to write more books on her own.

When I got No Ordinary Owl I didn't realize it was part of a series and it can certainly stand alone. It's about the girls in the S.A.V.E. Squad trying to help injured baby owls become able to be released.

But there's much more to the plot than that. This book is a mystery with lots of adventure included. And there's some conflict between the girls, too.

Someone is trying to stop the girls from helping the baby owls. Maybe even several people are trying to block their way and the girls must find out who is responsible for the problems and find a way to save the owls while maintaining their friendship.

I don't want to reveal too much, so I won't go into details about those things.

Girls who care about animals and/or enjoy mysteries and adventures will consider this book a good one.
