Owly Books Leaving Top Shelf
One small piece of news coming out of the Top Shelf acquisition by IDW was the fate of the wonderful Owly books by Andy Runton. Runton tweeted, in response to a question: “I’m actually gonna publish all of the Owly books myself.”
@fleenguy @BrigidAlverson I'm actually gonna publish all of the Owly books myself. But I wish all my Top Shelf buddies well! ^,^

There are five paperbacks, currently from Top Shelf, and two larger-format hardcover picture books from Atheneum Books for Young Readers. You can get signed copies of all of the above at Runton’s online store.
I’m excited to see Owly continue, because I think the stories are terrific, so I wish Runton the best in keeping the books in print.
