    I have read every single book. If you haven't read it and like to read , you might enjoy this book. It is geared for kids.. 9 years old and UP. (I started reading these at ... oh about age 38) [​IMG]

    Here is a bit about the first book in the Series...

    **************************

    Guardians of Ga'Hoole #1: The Capture

    When Soren, a Barn Owl, is pushed from his family's nest by his older brother, he is rescued from certain death on the forest floor by agents from St. Aggie's, a mysterious school for orphaned owls. When Soren arrives at St. Aggie's, he suspects there is more to the school than meets the eye. He and his new friend, the clever and scrappy Gylfie, find out that St. Aggie's is more sinister than they could have imagined. Soren and Gylfie devise a way to flee the dangerous school and warn owls everywhere about the dangers that lurk in the forest. Together, these owls must find their way through a difficult and perilous journey, in order to save owlkind from the evil plots being hatched at St. Aggies.

    Paperback: 240 Pages

    From School Library Journal:
    "The story's fast pace, menacing bad guys, and flashes of humor make this a good choice for reluctant readers, while the underlying message about the power of legends provides a unifying element and gives strong appeal for fantasy fans."

    I read the first... 6? I think then I couldn't find any of the other books and I didn't finish the series. I liked it when I did read it.

    Awesome! If he hasn't read the other series I posted about WARRIORS.. I bet he'd like that too! It's cats instead of owls!

    Quote:well if you liked Guardian of Ga'hoole.. you will most likely like the Warriors series. I turned a few kids on to them at my library, and now they are a big hit!

    I love the WARRIORS series! It's my favorite. But our library only has the first one. [​IMG] Ihave read them all except Sunset, and the third series.
