I really liked this book an this new series. I enjoyed reading at a different perspective of not a human but as an owl. This book had great detail and explained their events exceptionally.
I am currently reading the next book in this series and am almost done with that. May 02, Kathryn rated it it was ok Shelves: I was really turned off by one of the sections that was way too violent and gory for a children's book, IMO. It involved owls killing a bobcat and was utterly horrible! Furthermore, I despised the way the owls seemed to think certain creatures were "less than" others; perhaps this is rectified later in the book but many of the characters that seemed endearing in the first book started to get on my nerves and the plot just wasn't progressing quickly enough.
My husband felt the same way so we moved on to better things.
Sadly, I'm probably going to pass on the rest of this series that began with such promise. Oct 09, Lars Guthrie rated it liked it. Not quite as enthralling as the first in the series, but that's because Lasky has a lot of set-up work to do, once her band of young owls arrives at Ga'hoole. In other words, this looks like a series where you really do have to read sequentially. Certainly this volume would be confusing without having read the first, and now that I am on number three, 'The Rescue,' I am seeing that pattern repeated.
And as a young reader more tolerant of exposition pointed out to me, there are quite a few import Not quite as enthralling as the first in the series, but that's because Lasky has a lot of set-up work to do, once her band of young owls arrives at Ga'hoole. And as a young reader more tolerant of exposition pointed out to me, there are quite a few important events in 'The Journey'--Soren's reunion with his sister, the assigning of the owls to 'chaws,' and the disappearance of Ezylryb.
I'm going to keep reading. Really good writing. Really good style. Really good plot. Really good humor. Really good. But why am i rating it three stars if i thinks it's so good? You have asked a very good question. And at the moment, in order to fulfill your question of interest with the most true, sensible, simple, utter way possible would be to simply and cordially state, quite truly: Kau akan terbang sampai ke Hoolemere.
Kau telah bertahan dari serangan burung gagak. Kau telah terbang melintasi gurun. Kau akan terbang menembus angin, menembus cahaya Kau takkan gagal. Kau pasti bisa menyelesaikan perjalanan ini. Tujuan utama keempat sahabat Soren, Gylfie, Twilight dan Digger sudah jelas, mencari Pohon Ga'Hoole Agung Semuanya demi menciptakan keamanan dan ketentraman di dunia burung hantu.
Guardians of Ga'hoole #1: The Capture
Ditemani oleh Mrs Plithiver, ular tua pelayan-sarang keluar Kau akan terbang sampai ke Hoolemere. Ditemani oleh Mrs Plithiver, ular tua pelayan-sarang keluarga Saron, mereka menempuh perjalanan yang penuh dengan bahaya.
Konon khabarnya Pohon Ga'Hoole Agung tidak bisa dilihat, karena tumbuh di suatu pulau di tengah Laut Hoolemere yang nyaris seluas samudra. Pohon itu selalu diselimuti kabut dan pulaunya selalu dilanda badai salju. Hanya mereka yang percaya yang bisa menemukannya. Apakah mereka berempat percaya? Keempat sahabat itu sempat mengalami kesukaran saat melewati Danau Cermin. Kondisi lingkungannya tidak terlalu baik bagi keempat sahabat itu Semuanya terasa mudah dan indah. Disaat tempat lain sudah berada di awal musim dingin, Danau Cermin tetap berada dalam kondisi musim panas.
Dedaunan masih segar, rumpur masih subur, tanah juga masih hangat. Tempat itu bisa lebih berbahaya dari St Aggie! Namun sekali lagi Mrs Plithiver dengan kebijaksanaannya mampu membimbing Soren, Gylfie, Twilight dan Digger mengatasi masalah yang ada. Lolos dari Danau Cermin, mereka masih harus menghadapi bahaya yang lain.
Saat terbang sayap mereka mulai membeku, belum lagi tujuan mereka yang melenceng jauh. Lalu ada Waduh sebaiknya saya berhenti disini saja, sebelum spoiler. Maklum, ceritanya kian mendebarkan, banyak kejadian yang tak terduga, seperti Aduh saya mulai lagi! Begini sajalah, sekedar bocoran, buku ini terbagi dalam 25 bab, yaitu: Kepungan Burung gagak 2.
Ditemani Burung Hantu Hitam 3. Twilight Pamer 4. Danau Cermin 6. Celah Es 7. Sisi Lain Yonder 8. Malam Pertama ke Hari Pertama 9.

Oh, ya Yonder adalah sebutan ular buta untuk menjelaskan langit karena letaknya yang sangat jauh. Sedangkan Ryb Cerita dalam buku ini terlalu seru untuk tidak dibagikan! Secara keseluruhan, buku ini tetap semenarik buku pertamanya. Kisahnya kian membuat penasaran. Banyak ide-ide segar penulis yang dikembangkan menjadi sebuah cerita mendidik namun disuguhkan dengan cara yang menarik.
Misalnya bagaimana mereka berempat belajar untuk selalu kompak dan bekerjasa sama, mereka diharapkan tetap rendah hati walau telah berhasil mengalahkan berbagai bahaya, mereka harus tetap tekun belajar jika ingin sukses. Adegan menghibur juga bisa kita temui. Saya ikut tertawa membayangkan mereka juga memiliki kepala asrama yang disegani, seakan manusia yah Pada buku pertama, saya sempat merasa heran. Menurut cerita burung hantu makan ular.
Lalu bagaimana bisa pelayanan-sarang keluarga Sharon adalah sekor ular? Bukannya sama saja menawarkan drii untuk dimakan? Ternyata dalam buku ini dijelaskan, bahwa memang burung hantu memakan ular, namun bukan ular yang buta. Karena ular buta adalah pelayan-sarang keluarga. Untuk sementara bisa menahan rasa penasaran saya. Kadang dalam membaca sebuah cerita bersambung, kita sering lupa siapa saja tokoh yang ada. Selain tokoh utama, tentunya ada tokoh-tokoh lain.
Jangan khawatir, mulai dari halaman kita akan menemui catatan mengenai tokoh-tokoh yang ada dalam cerita. Lumayan untuk menyegarkan ingatan sehingga lebih bisa menikmati cerita. Namun untuk saat saya melihat pembatas buku yang diselipkan, entah kenapa saya lebih menyukai gambar yang ada dibandingkan gambar yang dipergunakan untuk cover.
Padahal hanya ada perbedaan kecil saja. Namun ternyata, sebuah perbedaan kecil memberikan efek yang tidak sedikit Selain cerita yang menarik , ada beberapa hal yang membuat saya merekomendasikan buku ini.
Pertama pemilihan font serta kerapatan huruf. Keduanya terasa nyaman di mata, sehingga mata tidak merasa lelah saat menyelesaikan buku ini. Lalu soal harga. Belakangan ini harga sebuah buku sering menjadi bahan pertimbangan utama dalam membeli. Alih-alih membeli, sering kali seseorang malah meminjam, padahal buku itu layak koleksi. Penerbit Kubika berani melakukan terobosan guna memanjakan pembacanya. Sejak melihat wajah mereka, saya langsung jatuh cinta.
Iseng-iseng ngintip ke Mbah google menemukan http: Satu untuk mengejapkan, satu untuk tidur, dan satu untuk membersihkan mata. Mata merekalah yang membuat mereka terlihat bijaksana.

I think that this book hooked me a bit more than the first one did. Life at the dystopian St. Aggie's was interesting, but life at the Great Ga'Hoole tree seemed richer in a sense that I'm not sure I can explain.
My biggest complaint about this book was that sometimes it felt like the author told too much rather than showing it. There are two big examples I can think of. One was the main character owls forming a band. This bond is significant and likely to continue throughout the rest of the ser I think that this book hooked me a bit more than the first one did.
This bond is significant and likely to continue throughout the rest of the series, but it felt a little forced upon us with the way she told us it fell into place, especially when Digger was still fairly new to the group. I think it would have been more meaningful of we could have watched the bond form naturally without it feeling so heavy-handed. Similarly, the introduction to the Mirror Lakes was all exposition.
The hypnotic effects of this place posed a huge threat to the first half of this story, but I as a reader never felt them personally because they were described to me in such a detached manner. Additionally, I felt like more should have been done with this concept.
It hovers like a half-threat as the owls consider going back there instead of to Ga'Hoole, but they don't, and then it's sort of forgotten. Since they kept thinking about it after they left, I wanted it to be more significant, either truly separating the band for a while or coming up later on in the story, and I was disappointed that it never did, though I acknowledge that it might in future books.
Apr 13, Jemma rated it it was ok. See my review of the previous book, still a little childish, but it's getting a little annoying Plus, the characters are beginning to look a tad familiar Sound like another fictional trio? May 18, Khanh rated it it was amazing.
These books are so freaking fun! May 19, Michaela rated it liked it. Dec 13, Alex rated it it was amazing. It was pretty cool with wet poop jokes. Plus the flying into fires which sounds cool to me.

Mereka sampai di lubang pohon cemara besar dan di sana Mrs Plithiver merawat luka Digger.
Selesai beristirahat, mereka melanjutkan perjalanan melalui jalur Sungai Hoole. Tampak kepulan asap di tengah hutan yang membumbung ke atas.
Mereka mendatanginya, dan setelah sampai di depan mulut gua sebagai pusat kebakaran mereka melihat seekor kucing hutan. Dengan cepat mereka berusaha membunuh kucing itu.
Penasaran melihat gua tadi, mereka pun memasukinya, dan menjumpai seekor burung hantu berbintik yang sekarat.
Apakah mereka dari St Aggie? Lalu burung itu pun mati. Mereka pun melanjutkan perjalanan dan sampai di Danau Cermin. Tempat itu menyenangkan sehingga keempat burung hantu itu bermalas-malasan. Tapi berbeda dengan Mrs P yang cemas dengan keadaan ini sehingga ia mengajak mereka melanjutkan perjalanan meski menghadapi hujan dan angin salju. Di sana mereka mengalami kehidupan bersekolah di chaw masing-masing. Ketika Digger mencari korban anak burung hantu yang tersesat dalam tugas chaw-nya, dia melihat burung hantu yang mirip Soren.
Ternyata itu memang adik Soren, Eglantine. Tapi Eglantine seperti tidak mengingat kakaknya. Hal itu lebih dari sekadar pembingungan di St Aggie. Namun setelah Madame Plonk menyanyikan lagu pengantar tidur akhirnya Eglantine pun tersadar. Dia hidup seperti biasa lagi. Mentari mulai muncul dan mereka tidur. Membaca buku ini buat saya menarik sekali. Ceritanya juga dapat menginspirasi kehidupan saya. Burung hantunya unik-unik. Saya juga bisa mengambil banyak hikmah dalam cerita ini.
Selain itu saya juga jadi tertarik dengan makhluk hidup yang bernama burung hantu: Oct 11, Sofia rated it did not like it. The Journey by Kathryn Lasky, pages.

Guardians of Ga'Hoole #1: The Capture
After all that, they get swept off course by the evil properties of the mirror lakes. It takes a whole chapter or tw The Journey by Kathryn Lasky, pages.
It takes a whole chapter or two, but they eventually make it out of the mirror lakes, due to a harsh wind. They eventually make it to their destination. Then they discover that they all might not be together in the order of owls they came to. They are somewhat still in a group, since they are still taking beginners classes together.
Their chaws did turn out separated though. I liked this book I guess. It was somewhat interesting at the beginning. It was boring once they got to the second half, I was so bored. The first half was amazing though. I overall would rate it, like 3 stars.

You might also like to preview the movie trailer , which covers the first three books in the series, and decide if you would like to show students to engage their interest in the book.
Tell them to look back at the map as they read the story to help them visualize the setting and action. Then ask students to look at the illustration on the page before the title page.
Do they recognize the little owl that is in the talons of the bigger owl? What do they think is happening in the picture? Explain to students that context clues are words or phrases that help to identify the meaning of a word and then demonstrate for students how to use them.
In addition to the made-up words in the novel, Lasky uses a sophisticated vocabulary to describe the characters and actions.

How does the author make the fantasy world of the owls real? List parts of the story that made their world seem real. Sample answer: Sore and Gylfie were such great characters and I wanted them to escape so much that I forgot I was reading about owls, not humans.
How does the author make you like Soren and Gilfie? How does she make you dislike Skench and Spoorn and the other evil owls? I like Soren and Gilfie because they are brave enough to fight against the evil owls and I identify with their desire to be free.
I dislike Skench and the bad owls because they are mean, they lie, and they try to brainwash the owlets. Use context clues on page 70 to tell what the word yoicks means. Are there governments or rulers in the real world that are like Skench and Spoorn?

They might want to integrate other kinds of information in the chart including, habitat, country, and number of offspring. Challenge students to write a review of The Capture , giving it a rating of one to four stars. First, have them each create a star rating system, or rubric.
Ask students to decide the characteristics of all levels from a four-star book to a one-star book. Then ask students to rate the book according to their own criteria and write an opinion essay that explains their rating.
Emphasize that every opinion is legitimate as long as it is supported by reasoning and evidence. Give each student an opportunity to answer the big question.
