    Well deserved! The gold looks good next to Molly’s golden feathers!

  3. dennens Says:

    How Cool!!!! Would you have ever thought a “Common Barn Owl” could do so much, educate so many, and bring a community together! Congratulations!!

  4. Rhonda Says:

    Beautiful and well deserved! Our little barn owl is amazing and has done great things!

  5. NatureLuver Says:

    We all knew Eric and Chris’ book was GOLD material, now the rest of the world knows!!!!
    CONGRATULATIONS, and yes, I am yelling…..Woo Hoo, Yippee, sniff sniff and all those emotions!
    I am so happy for all of you Carlos, Donna, Austin, Eric & Chris. So much talent and such deserving people. I am so blessed to have been a part of this.

    Wow, what a deserved honor for all your hard work!! Kudos to Carlos & Donna, Austin, Chris and Eric….wonderful book!!

  7. VSue Says:


    And I FINALLY have the “Fun Money” so I can adopt this book. I did adopt the Clutch Two which I am so excited about getting when it gets here. I would have got Clutch One but no fun money for that one and I felt since I only discovered the owlbox right before Ashley hatched that this is the book I had to have. Now this one I can get and what a wonderful one to have to pass on from generation to generation! A true family heirloom keepsake!

  8. VSue Says:

    Just one more thing…


    MANY SCREECHES (cheers) for all involved in the writing and illustrations of the book and especially to Carlos, Donna and Austin for bringing the Molly Owl to the world!

    So well deserved this book surely is gold!

    <3 to everyone

  10. Mary B. Says:

    WOW or should I say OWL! Congrats to all involved, especially Eric and Chris, Carlos and Donna, Austin!
    Molly and McGee are such special, special creatures they adopted Carlos and Donna! Big shout out to Donna for having the idea in the first place, Carlos for building the Owl Box and Eric for writing,Chris for drawing and Austin, who matured right before our eyes. Good going Eric, your little corner if the world will be larger now. And Gee that was fun!

    Memory Lane

    How the journey of a Gold Medal began with one thought, then an ebook and finally a hardcover edition, in conjunction with a new publishing company, Molly the Owl Books!

    March 26, 2010 – Announcing: A children’s ebook

    April 3, 2010 – Ebook Illustrator Chris Adams

    Later you will see recordings when the decision to publish a hardback edition was announced, due to Molly Watchers desire to hold a book in their hands. I will never forget the excitement by all!

    Ustream Archived Recordings – Inside the Owl Box

    If you missed the 24/7 coverage of Molly & McGee’s First Clutch of owlets (Max, Pattison, Austin and Wesley), and you buy and read the Gold Prize-Winning book about their true story, you can still watch the story unfold in the recordings which Carlos Royal has carefully made for us, labelled and put in the Ustream Archives!

    But if you don’t want to watch them in order, you can choose how to sort them to find ‘most recent’, ‘least recent’, ‘most viewed’, ‘least viewed’ – they are all worth watching!

    For example, you can spot the live events where Carlos did Q&A with schools around the country. This was the First of many – pushing new boundaries and education was always on Carlos Royal’s mind!

    Live Narration from Pattison Elementary
    First live Q&A with Carlos Royal – owlet named in honor of the event!

    There are also 232 outside the owl box recordings here:

  14. Nancy Anthony Says:

    Congratulations. Now Carlos, I want you to think about having a Nautilus Award sticker to offer which we can attach to all of our books. I cherish my signed copy.

  15. Vee Miller (VeeTX) Says:

    Congrats to everyone involved!!!! But most of all, we thank Carlos and Donna for putting up the owl box and Austin for setting up Grandpa with all the technical stuff, and Molly and Leggs McGee for moving in and sharing their families and lives with everyone. Imagine – all the accolades because of two lowley barn owls.

    Yes, we want a gold sticker to put on our book covers!!!

  16. Christy in West Virginia Says:

    Congratulations to all!!! The entire Molly Mania experience is one of those rare occasions when serendipity takes over. The people involved in the many projects surrounding Molly and her family made all this work. Have you noticed how humble Molly is? No airs about her. Nor with anyone who worked to make this miracle happen. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we humans all took a page from Molly’s book. I do wish I had the opportunity to meet each and every one of you involved in the Molly project and say thank you personally. I am anxiously waiting for my copy of the second clutch book, and 2 copies of Molly the Owl. Carlos,-if I remember correctly from last summer or fall, there was a way for us MOD’s to purchase books for children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to own a copy. If I am right, and there is still a way to do this, would you let me know?

  20. Eleanor Dodge Says:

    Congratulations!! Excellent work by Chris and Eric and a wonderful experience because of Carlos, Donna and Austin. And yes the world is a better place now because of our Molly and McGee. The enjoyment we received and the friends we made is an unforgettable experience and I am so glad that I was a part of it. Just a common little barn owl that wasn’t so common afterall. Hugz!
