A read aloud animal story Owl tells of Torkelmani the Law Speaker, Charlie Whiteloon, the Anciano, Bedouin Sa'ad Saleh, and Kinkakuji.

In search of wisdom and his childhood friend,  Owl journeys eastward across oceans and forests and deserts.  His letters tell of  the voices of wisdom - Torkelmani the Law Speaker, the Ancient One, the Bedouin Sa'ad Saleh, and the Merciful One of the Golden Roofs of Kinkakuji.  They tell of his valiant search for the Olden Chests of Yore and the Learned Ledgers of Wisdom.
