Stacey O’Brien is the best-selling author of Wesley the Owl: The Remarkable Love Story of an Owl and His Girl. Recounting her 19-year relationship with an 18-inch Barn Owl adopted from Caltech, where she was a student researcher, the memoir has now been published in German, Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese), Korean, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Japanese, Hungarian and a special U.K. edition. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly declared, This memoir will captivate animal lovers and, though not necessarily for kids, should hold special appeal for Harry Potter fans who’ve always envied the boy wizard his Hedwig.
