Series by Andy Runton. Marietta, GA: Top Shelf Productions, 2004
A largely wordless graphic novel series about the adventures of a gentle kind-hearted owl named Owly who just wants to be a good friend, a clever worm named Wormy, and a gluttonous but also kind-hearted chipmunk named Sampy. While Owly sometimes has trouble being as good-natured as he'd hope to be, his optimism never fails.
