Owl Diaries Eva's Treetop Festival by:Rebecca Elliott is a bubbly, playful book that is best suited for little girls.

 

This  is the personal diary of Eva the Owl, and most girls will be able to relate to her right away.  The diary begins by telling you who she is, and like most 8 year olds, she likes "my diary, drawing, making stuff, the word pumpkin, cool clothes, school, and being busy."

 

 Her writing focuses on an idea for a "Bloomtastic Festival." She came up with the idea for a "Bloomtastic Festival" because she wanted to celebrate the beginning of Spring with her classmates. Eva wanted the "Bloomtastic Festival" to be fun for her classmates, so she decided to make the festival have talent shows, bake offs, fashion shows, and more. Eva was very excited when she shared her idea with her teacher, Mrs.Featherbottom.  Eva became both excited and nervous because Mrs.Featherbottom not only agreed but wanted to make it a schoolwide event. Eva's classmates are giving Eva more ideas for the "Bloomtastic Festival," and Eva takes some of the suggestions. Eva encountered some trouble making all of the events possible.  Did Eva put too much on her plate? 

 

Eva also has an arch nemesis, Sue, who discourages her constantly along the way.  I think we can all relate to having that one kid at school that just has to push you around.  Between Sue and all the work Eva has to do to make the Bloomtastic Festival successful, there are a lot of lessons to be learned.  Although, Eva's best friend Lucy, helps Eva along the way the help with the stress that Eva is going through to make the "Bloomtastic Festival" possible. My favorite part of this story was when Eva and Lucy were showing each other the things that they wanted to do for the festival, I found that part entertaining.

 

I recommend this story for little girls ages 8 and younger. This book was extremely easy and a fast read for me. I liked all of the pictures in the book the most because they are very colorful and happy. I also liked how the author kept you engaged in the story, I wanted to keep on reading more after each chapter. However, I did not like how Eva's enemy Sue, keeps on trying to discourage Eva in making the festival possible. I found that part a little too close to real life.
