#014 barney the owl


"Barney is a number-crunching love-sick owl; a mathematics teacher whose mum is desperately trying her best to mend his broken heart. Lately the look in his shiny mischievous eye has been replaced with a wide-eyed vacant stare, and as each day goes by he gets a little paler and not even his mum’s home-cooking can fix it. Until he once again meets that night-loving individual to laugh at him while he calculates the exact angle at which to hunt prey, you can hear his wistful screeching in the last few hours before dawn." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
