The Hollow in the Hill, by Karen Chacek, earns the CLC Seal of Approval
Little Habicht is a skinny, wide-eyed hawk. He's definitely not the coolest, and by no means the toughest, but he may arguably be the bravest hawk in his school. Because one day Habicht decided to stand up to the three biggest bullies around. To prove his fearlessness, the bullies talked Habicht into going to the most dangerous and fearful place imaginable. But when the four young hawks are inadvertently stranded alone in the creepiest valley in the kingdom, Habicht's bravery is put to the ultimate test.
Karen Chacek's The Hollow in the Hill is a children's picture book which addresses the issues of friendship and bullying in a way that will give young readers lots to ponder. Lovely illustrations help make this a book which kids will want to return to again and again. The Hollow in the Hill is highly recommended and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
