    I blush to admit that I had not head of the Lasky s series until the movie brought it to my attention My husband and I had just finished one of Kenneth Oppel s Silverwing books when we saw the trailer for this adorable and very cool looking owl movie So, when I found out it was based on a book, it seemed only natural to transition from reading about bats to owls The Capture was a real surprise for me I was expecting something cute and fun and adventuresome Instead, I got something mu I blush to admit that I had not head of the Lasky s series until the movie brought it to my attention My husband and I had just finished one of Kenneth Oppel s Silverwing books when we saw the trailer for this adorable and very cool looking owl movie So, when I found out it was based on a book, it seemed only natural to transition from reading about bats to owls The Capture was a real surprise for me I was expecting something cute and fun and adventuresome Instead, I got something muchweighty and even philosophical at times Parts of it reminded me of The Golden Compass and parts even brought to mind 1984 yeah scary Yeah, there are some adorable owls in this book, but there are also a lot of creepy and evil ones and they want to take over the world by brainwashing young owls Ack The book was alsoviolent than I was expecting with a few owl deaths, orphaned owls and even an owl eating another owl Um, woah Overall, though, it does have some humor and warmth mixed in and I thought the personalities of the owls were very well developed for such a short book It s wonderful to watch Soren s transformation from a scared baby owl to an older owl ready to become a hero since the times call for one I was a little annoyed that the ending was so clearly NOT resolving many of the plot threads, demanding that you read the sequels if you want to know what happens But, even so, it did have a sense of conclusion in terms of Soren s developmental journey and intentions for the future.A note about the cover I usually am not a fan of movie tie in covers, but I just think the owl in the movie is so darn adorable I couldn t resist However, the older cover, brown with the close up of the owl face eye, has really cute illustrations of the main owl characters inside the front and back cover, something the movie tie in is sorely lacking

    I wanted to like these books, but I didn t I trudged through three volumes before I told my daughter that we needed to find something else to read A few points 1 The world building is inconsistent and poorly thought out If, in this post human world, stone castles are littlethan tumbled ruins, how would any barn have survived well enough for barn owls to associate themselves with them And why would they anyway The inexplicable knowledge of the owls regarding human buildings is strange I wanted to like these books, but I didn t I trudged through three volumes before I told my daughter that we needed to find something else to read A few points 1 The world building is inconsistent and poorly thought out If, in this post human world, stone castles are littlethan tumbled ruins, how would any barn have survived well enough for barn owls to associate themselves with them And why would they anyway The inexplicable knowledge of the owls regarding human buildings is strange compared to their complete lack of knowledge of humans themselves.2 The narcissistic belief of owl superiority over other birds, the wet poopers on the part of the owls, and the zealous reverence for owls on the part of their servile nest maid snakes, becameandcreepy with each successive book.3 These books could benefit from a glossary of terms and slang in the back of each That would remove the seeming necessity to give up page space, better reserved for actual plot and character development, in favor of telling the reader what they already know Just how many times does one need to be reminded what plummels are anyway 4 And if I never have to read another story derailing, non scanning, doggerel battle chant again, it will be too soon

    A traditional kids against the world story done in a very original way The characters in this story are all owls They start off very young and innocent and are forced to grow up very quickly when some evil owls take advantage of them It turns into the beginning of an epic adventure which takes another 14 books to complete.The book is a nice stepping stone between first readers and young adult fiction in reading difficulty, as well as in plot complexity and concepts I think older grade school A traditional kids against the world story done in a very original way The characters in this story are all owls They start off very young and innocent and are forced to grow up very quickly when some evil owls take advantage of them It turns into the beginning of an epic adventure which takes another 14 books to complete.The book is a nice stepping stone between first readers and young adult fiction in reading difficulty, as well as in plot complexity and concepts I think older grade school students and tweens would enjoy reading it themselves and slightly younger kids would enjoy having it read to them I showed it to my 7 year old and he didn t quite feel like he was up to tackling it on his own There are some pretty serious ideas in this story, but they are introduced with minimum of fuss so I don t think kids will be disturbed Rather, it seems like a great way for kids to start thinking about ideas like good vs evil, overcoming fear, loyalty and even death There is also a small amount of religious symbolism or allusion, enough to lend some grandeur to the tale but not so much as to spark that conversation unless an adult points it out.The friend who recommended these books to me said that they d prompted her son into doing additional research about owls and that it s become a real area of interest for him This book did the same for me, to some degree at least I don t have quite the obsessive nature that an 8 year old has about his favorite topic But I did enjoy learningabout the various owl species in the book and was prompted to do some extra research to verify some of the information and see additional photos about these fascinating creatures I love books that are as educational as they are fun

    So these series weren t like AMAZING but they were worth reading They actually made me come to have a love for owls and have a big owl fetish haha Some may think it s weird with a world of talking owls cough um, you do know people there s other books I may not have read, have read or maybe not ever read that I know of that there s talking animals like Redwall And there s Narnia Same with Disney Little mermaid, Cinderella, lion king, dumbo, Fox and the Hound I could go on My point is who So these series weren t like AMAZING but they were worth reading They actually made me come to have a love for owls and have a big owl fetish haha Some may think it s weird with a world of talking owls cough um, you do know people there s other books I may not have read, have read or maybe not ever read that I know of that there s talking animals like Redwall And there s Narnia Same with Disney Little mermaid, Cinderella, lion king, dumbo, Fox and the Hound I could go on My point is who cares if it s a world of talking owls don t give weird looks Do you do that while watching Disney or Narnia or whatever No So don t judge it before you actually read it I did like these series and see the main little owl Soren come out of his comfort zone and become a great warrior when fighting for his new friends and loved ones Even when he fell in love with another owl and had owlets he was still strong and his trusty friends he had met in the first book were ALWAYS there by his side The only reason I did pick them up years back was 1 mom got them on book orders 2 it was before I REALLY came to have a love for reading in my sopho year I believe 9 10 years ago Lost count haha and 3 why not I thought the first few out sounded good and ever since they had been released we d get them and my love for owls became bigger Looking back they re a quick read and actually worth reading and fun for the middle grade level But if you like owls anyway then read these But overall, this is my review for the whole series and saying they re worth reading at least once PS movie was okay but I did prefer the book series D

    I picked this book, even though it is a children s novel because I saw a preview for the movie, Guardians of Ga Hoole The movie has the most amazing animation, I know I ll want to see it Often the book for these children s movies are so much better than the movie, so I decided I d give it a whirl After getting past the reader s various owl voices, some of which are quite overdone, I really enjoyed the book.It truly is a social commentary on the world and the evil in itand the good Much it I picked this book, even though it is a children s novel because I saw a preview for the movie, Guardians of Ga Hoole The movie has the most amazing animation, I know I ll want to see it Often the book for these children s movies are so much better than the movie, so I decided I d give it a whirl After getting past the reader s various owl voices, some of which are quite overdone, I really enjoyed the book.It truly is a social commentary on the world and the evil in itand the good Much it of it reminds me of the Afghan and Iraq wars, of the Holocaust, of the Civil Rights Movement, of those we hear about on the nightly news who do evil to others and those who do good Because of this, it is a vastly disturbing book I know children in third, fourth, and fifth grade would love it and not be disturbed by it They would see the courage, the bravery, the adventure, the scientific detail that makes the book exciting The message of overcoming evil with courage is important and would be understood by students It could easily lead to discussions of how to deal with bullying in schools I love the times when, despite their obvious differences, the good owls band together, accepting the strengths of each of them and helping overcome the disabilities of each The good owls seek to dissolve differences of class and background in order to work for the greater good.I ll listen toin this series

Upacara Daging Pertama Upacara Terbang PertamaUpacara Ular PertamaSebagian jenis upacara yang harus dilalui oleh para burung hantu dalam kehidupannyaTernyata tidak hanya manusia yang perlu mewaspadai penculikan Burung hantu juga Tengok saja nasib Soren Soren diculik dan dibawa ke tempat yang bernama Sekolah untuk Burung Hantu Yatim Piatu Padahal ia masih memiliki orang dua dan dua saudara Di tempat itu juga terdapat ribuan anak Burung Hantu yang menjadi korban penculikan.Soren dilahirkan di Hutan Tyto, tempat tinggal Burung Hantu Barn yang selama ribuan tahun hidup dalam damai Sebelum diculik ia sudah pernah mengikuti Upacara Tulang Pertama kakaknya, Kudd Upacara Daging Pertama adiknya, Eglatine serta Upacara Bulu Pertama bagi dirinya sendiri.Soren yang memang serba ingin tahu, kali in justru mendapat celaka karena mengucapkan sebuah pertanyaan Alih alih mendapat jawaban atas pertanyannya, ia malah mendapati bulu bulu halusnya dicabuti Di Sekolah untuk Burung Hantu Yatim Piatu, semua burung hantu diharap bersikap patuh Sebuah pertanyaan berarti hukuman.Ternyata pertempuran merebutkan kekuasan serta upaya membuat dunia tempat tinggalnya damai tidak hanya urusan manusia namun juga urusan vampire,Manusia Serigala, pemyihir dan sekarang giliran Burung Hantu Di tempat yang menakutkan itu Soren bertekad untuk tetap bertahan, walau tidak tidur berhari hari, dan aneka peraturan serta hukuman yang dia terima Bersama dengan Gylfie sahabat barunya, Saron berusaha meloloskan diri demi mencari keluarganya serta melindungi dunia burung hantu dari bahaya yang mengancam.Mengikuti genre yang tertulis dibelakang buku ini, Fiksi Fantasi, memang banyak hal fantasi yang tercantum Namun alasan yang ada bisa dibilang cukup masuk akal untuk sebuah fantasi Misalnya semua burung hantu diharuskan tidur di malam hari dan bekerja pada siang hari, padahal umumnya burung hantu justru tidur malam siang hari Mungkin buku ini bisa mengobati kegundahan hati Mbak Poppy atas banyaknya cerita fiksi fantasi yang sangat tidak masuk logikaDalam , terdapat judul lengkap Guardians of Ga hoole yaitu 1 The Capture 2003 2 The Journey 2003 3 The Rescue 2004 4 The Siege 2004 5

Exile 2008 15 The War of the Ember 2008 Lost Tales Of Ga Hoole 2010 with Kathryn Huang Berarti masih panjang kisah petualangan Soren Semoga penerbitnya mau menerbitkan hingga tuntas tidak latah seperti penerbit yang lain, hanya 1 atau 2 buku saja dari 1 seriInformasi yang dikutip dari situ resmi penerbit, menyebutkan bahwa buku ini juga sudah dibuatkan video game 3D Video game ini memberikan pengalaman gameplay baru dengan menangkap burung hantu yang berkelahi dan penerbangan dengan kontrol intuitif dan halus, kata Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Produksi dan Pengembangan, Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment Para pemainnya bukan hanya terbang, juga saat mereka berberlomba terbang, menyerang dan mengembangkan kemampuan mereka untuk pengalaman yang lebih mendalam di seluruh lingkungan yang indah yang digambarkan dalam permainan Penasaran, apa dalam video game ini, kita akan menjadi seorang eh seekor burung hantu Namun baru pada Bulan September kita bisa menikmati video gamesnya Buat yang penasaran dengan video game dan filmya, jangan ragu ragu mengunjungi Banyak informasi yang bisa diperoleh, termasuk mengenai penulisnya, Kathryn Lasky Kathryn Lasky lahir 24 Juni 1944 Sejak lama ia memiliki ketertarikan pada burung hantu hingga melakukan penelitian mendalam.Wajar jika Kathryn Lasky sangat menyukai Burung Hantu dalam Bahasa iIggrisnya disebut owl Burung ini benar benar unik karena termasuk spesies burung nokturna, yaitu melakukan raktivitas di malam hari yang berkaki dua Kemampuan penglihatannya sangat tajam, hingga mangsa dalam jarak jauhpun bisa dilihat Ini merupakan keistimewaan burung hantu dibandingkan dengan burung lainnya Burung hantu merupakan hewan pemakan daging yang tergolong buas Burung hantu bahkan bisa dapat memutar kepalanya hingga 360 derajat untuk mendengar suara suara yang ada di sekelilingnya Disamping itu kedua matanya menghadap ke depan Sekilas Burung Hantu jantan dan Burung Hantu betina terlihat serupa, padahal ada perbedaannya Saat lahir kepala Burung Hantu betina lebih besar daripada Burung Hantu jantan Kelak bobot Burung Hantu betina umumnya 25 persen lebih besar dari si jantan Suaranya yang tidak merdu membuat orang sering kali takut mendengarnya Apalagi adanya mitos yang menakutkan Di India, suara burung hantu bisa jadi pertanda akan datangnya kematian Di Roma, burung hantu yang hinggap di sekitar rumah melambangkan kematian Sebut saja Julius Caesar, Augustus, Commodus Aurelius, dan Agrippa contoh kematian yang diawali hinggapnya burung hantu.Namun di beberapa negara Burung Hantu juga dianggap bermanfaat, di Yunani jika ada burung hantu yang terbang mengitari pasukan yang tengah berperang, maka pasukan itu dianggap mampu meraih kemenangan Dahulu saat saya kecil,pernah ada seekor Burung Hantu di rumah Setiap ia mengeluarkan suara khasnya saya langsung jadi Anak Manis Karena meurut para Ajudan Rumah Tangga itu tanda sedang ada malaikat yang mencatat kelakukan anak anak Saya masih ingat betapa kagumnya saya melihat burung itu memutar mutar kepalanya Canggih Bagi anak anak yang tinggal diperkotaan, Burung hantu hanya dikenal sebagai lambang kebijaksanaan Namun sejak munculnya buku dan film HP, Burung Hantu mulai mendapat perhatikan orang lagi Bahkan ujian kecakapan pemyihir di HP disingkat menjadi OWL Burung Hantu Juga khanWajarlah jika para penyihir muda diharap memiliki kebijaksanaan seperti Burung Hantu he he heMemandang cover buku ini jadi terseyum sendiri.Duh imutnya wajah para burung hantu itu

    Di sini, burung hantu kerap diidentikkan dengan keberadaan makhluk halus Di India bahkan suara burung hantu merupakan pertanda akan datangnya kematian Tapi dalam mitologi Yunani, Athena digambarkan dengan simbol burung hantu yang melambangkan pengetahuan dan kebijaksanaan Dikatakan bahwa jika ada burung hantu yang terbang berputar di atas pasukan yang sedang berperang, maka dipastikan pasukan tersebut akan menang Makanya Troy berhasil dikalahkan kali ya Atw si Athena emang sebel aja gara ga Di sini, burung hantu kerap diidentikkan dengan keberadaan makhluk halus Di India bahkan suara burung hantu merupakan pertanda akan datangnya kematian Tapi dalam mitologi Yunani, Athena digambarkan dengan simbol burung hantu yang melambangkan pengetahuan dan kebijaksanaan Dikatakan bahwa jika ada burung hantu yang terbang berputar di atas pasukan yang sedang berperang, maka dipastikan pasukan tersebut akan menang Makanya Troy berhasil dikalahkan kali ya Atw si Athena emang sebel aja gara gara kalah saingan ama Aphrodite yang ngasih Helen buat Paris Back to the story Kisah ini tentang usaha sekelompok burung hantu yang mencoba menguasai burung hantu lain, bahkan dunia Usaha itu direncanakan dengan sangat matang Mulai dari pencurian telur, penculikan anak anak burung hantu sebagai tenaga kerja, cuci otak aka pembingungan, sampai usaha mempersenjatai diri dengan cakar cakar perang As if their claws are not enough Tapi tidak ada gading yang tak retak Kalo ada ga jadi cerita niy buku pSoren, seekor burung hantu barn yang bersahabat dengan Gylfie, seekor burung hantu peri, berhasil menyelamatkan diri dari pembingungan Berdua mereka berusaha melarikan diri dari cengkeraman St Aegolius dan menyelamatkan kerajaan burung hantu Satu satunya harapan mereka adalah Ga Hoole Agung Jadi tahu sedikit tentang beberapa jenis burung hantu dan ternyata di Indonesia juga ada lho, burung hantu seperti si Soren ini Namanya Serak Jawa Tyto alba javanicus dan mereka memang pemburu tikus nomor wahid Yang menyebalkan dari buku ini adalah banyaknya typo Yang paling sering itu adalah penulisan kepakkan yang seharusnya ditulis kepakan , trus penulisan ke yg menunjukkan tempat seperti kemana ke mana, kesana ke sana Belum lagi beberapa penggunaan kata tidak baku seperti coklat cokelat, ijin izin, hujam hunjam, jaman zaman Tapi kalo emang gaya selingkungnya gitu siy gapapa, soalnya mereka emang konsisten dari awal sampe akhir begitu terus tapi kalo nggak, jadi bertanya tanya, proofreadernya ngapain aja sih hehehe maap, emang cuma kecil kecil tapi tetap aja mengganggu Kalo gw, pasti udah potong gaji kalo segitu banyaknya curhat Minjem aja segini cerewetnya DPS sambil baca buku ini malah ngebayangin gimana perasaannya stuart little ya hehehe abis burung hantu makan tikus sih Tikus sepertinya ga dianggap sebagai makhluk berintelegensia di sini Makasi Ine pinjeman bukunya
