This book is about a young owl who goes on an adventure named soren. Has a mom a dad a older brother and a little sister in the family. At night he gets snatched by a couple of owls that take him to an orphanage called ST.aggies orphanage. While here soren meets a friend named gylfie. Gylfie helps soren escape the orphanage and they meet two new friends twilight and digger. Twilight is a great gray owl and digger is a burrower owl. Twilight and digger both went to the orphanage to because diggers family was killed by the owls that work that work at the orphanage. Twilight was snatched the same way soren did when he was very young. After a while soren and his friends found a family of puffins. And helped them with their food supply. After that they found the Great Gahoole Tree.

: my opinion for this book is that it was inspiring because it had lots of learning and words that are ones that i did not know about yet, and really fun to read with all the action, and the adventure, and the magic being used in it it just made me wanna read more. Also it was real exciting with all the battles. when i thought they were going to lose the battles with the evil army
They actually won it. This book really reminds me about the real things like war and battles that have going on in the past. So i have decided to read more of these books to see what happens next.

Very fun read. I love Lasky's style of writing! Great story, interesting characters, and a strong plot. ( )

Pretty intense story for kids, I have to say. I didn't see the movie so I don't know how much of it got translated, but I was definitely surprised. There's some fairly brutal violence. The plot is very engaging, though, and it's (for the most part) written well enough that it's not painful for adults to read. Also you learn a lot about owls, which seems kind of contrived, but is interesting nonetheless. ( )

Great series. Interesting first book. Didn't like what they did to it for the movie, but that's typical. Love Digger.
