Guardians of Ga'hoole
Review by Caitee, 8th grade
There is a book series, Guardians of Ga'Hoole by Kathryn Lasky, that I have been reading all year. Initially, there are 15 books in the series, but Ms. Kathryn wrote a book entitled "A Guide to the Great Tree", and another, "Lost Tales of Ga'Hoole". This series begins with a young Barn Owl named Soren, going through his adventurous time trying to find the Great Tree, which is said to be a myth, other hard times, and a remarkable child and adulthood. Near the middle of the series, you read about Soren's nephew's lifehood, how Nyroc (A.K.A. Coryn, Soren's nephew) has a special ability, and his destiny that he has to discover. All of that is in between books 1 thru 7. In those books, there is much more than what I told, like wars, wolves, and more! Books 8 thru 11, each book is a legend about Hoole (you have to read to discover who Hoole is) and his journey to become the king of the owl kingdoms. I am only on book 13, and in a new beginning of another story, so I cannot tell you about books 12 thru 15, or the extra books that were written. Characters in the book: Soren, Glyfie, Twilight, Digger, Coryn, Ezlryb, Otelissa, Martin, Ruby, Eglantine, Madame Plonk, Mrs. P., Pelli, Primrose, Octavia, Octavia, and Doc Finebeak. There are MANY more characters, and things to tell how wonderful this series is. Read this book series!!!!!!
