Hoot Owl: Master of Disguise by Sean Taylor and Jean Jullien

Night falls in the woods. As some creatures start to rest, others begin to hunt. One predator in particular has a preference for trickery. Prepare yourself for Hoot Owl: Master of Disguise!

Our ambitious bird of prey will go to any lengths to catch his meal. He sees a delicious-looking rabbit and quickly fashions a gigantic carrot costume. Surely the bunny will fall for this clever camouflage...until it hops away.

The Midnight Library by Kazuno Kohara

The Midnight Library is a curious little building. A young librarian and her three assistant owls work there all night to provide books and services for the town's animals. Two-legged or four, pawed or winged, all walks of life are welcome. This can lead to some minor issues, such as when squirrels start playing music in the quiet reading room!
