Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome stories Reading a book by Kathryn Lasky has long been on my list of things to do. But because she mainly writes series and some of them are long, I had not started yet because I did not want to get sucked in. When this collection of short stories became available I pounced at the opportunity. I was not disappointed. This collection of stories shows a breadth and depth of life in the Owl world created by Lasky. The stories in this collection are: The Snowy Sisters Fritha's Painted Past Uglamore Redeemed Brothers Brave and Blustery A Secret in Braithe's Gizzard Cleve's Sorrow With a greeting from Soren, the Monarch of the great tree of Ga'Hoole, and an afterwards by Otulissa, the historian of the great tree, this collection will entertain, enlighten and challenge readers. I think what I loved best about this collection is that even though these are stories about Owl society, each has a lesson we can learn from, some we will draw courage from, some we will be challenged by, and some will just entertain. But each of these stories has lessons that can be transposed to our own lives and our development into learning to be better at being. And maybe that is the secret to the popularity of these books and the movie; they challenge the reader to think, and if the reader is open, to being changed for the better. The stories in this collection are so well written, I have moved reading the whole Gardians of Ga'Hoole series and the Wolves of the Beyond series towards the top of my to read pile. Both series are set in the same world, and if they are as good as this collection of short stories, they will be great reads. I for one will be return to the Northern and Southern kingdoms in these stories again soon.
