The author reads from and signs copies of the new work.

El Moises, Albuquerque artist and the illustrator behind the Owl series with Rudolfo Anaya, signs copies and reads their new book, No More Bullies.

The adventures and lessons continue in this second book featuring "Owl in a Straw Hat" (Ollie Tecolote). This book tackles the subject of bullying of classmates for being different. Jackie Jackalope is missing from school and the teacher (Ollie's grandmother) gets to the bottom of it. The kids have been teasing Jackie about her horns and she has run away to her parents in Pot of Gold Land. A contrite Ollie along with Uno the Unicorn (both guilty of teasing) volunteer to find and bring Jackie back to school. Their journey to Jackie's home leads to encounters with three guardians of the Dark Forest (NM monsters/legends): La Llorona, El Kookoóee, and Skeleton Woman; and the Golden Carp who allows them to cross Rainbow Bridge. They reach Jackie and apologize and take her back to Wisdom School. Rudolfo Anaya's magical characters are brought to life by illustrator El Moisés.
