    When we read Margaret Craven s brilliant and evocative I Heard the Owl Call My Name in junior high and I would consider I Heard the Owl Call my Name while not perhaps suitable for young readers, definitely both appropriate and fitting for anyone above the age of twelve or so , I just and mainly enjoyed and appreciated the author s narrative as a heart warming and in many ways heart wren
