Fans of the wonderful Guardians of Ga’Hoole series are in for one more treat. Otulissa, the Ga’Hoole Tree’s historian, has put together a collection of six tales. These lost tales bring readers back to the early days, before the owls became Guardians.


Treachery, Escapes and Ugly Names

You’ll learn about Thora Plonk, her sister Brunwella and the treachery going on in their very own home. You’ll see how Fritha—a Pygmy Owl and kraal from the Northern Kingdoms—escaped her life of violence and disguise and found her place at the Great Ga’Hoole Tree. You’ll find out how the barn owl Bartholomew, who hated his name, was given a far worse name—Uglamore. But he was not defeated. He helped a young owl named Nyroc escape his horrible mother and travel to the Great Ga’Hoole Tree.


Heroes, Ghosts and Grief

The Lost Tales explore the early lives of brothers Cletus and Tavis. When their home in the Desert of Kuneer was overtaken by the Pure Ones, they were forced to flee. But not before rescuing their neighbors. You’ll learn about Braithe’s visit with an elderly apparition. And finally, you’ll learn about Cleve of Firthmore who still blames himself for his brother Clay’s death.


The Bottom Line

Guardians of Ga’Hoole: Lost Tales of Ga’Hoole is a fantastic collection of stories. It’s exciting to see the early life of the guardians and how they came to be a part of the Great Ga’Hoole Tree. This is one of those books that you’re guaranteed to enjoy, even if you haven’t read the Guardians of Ga’Hoole series. Tell us what you think of this companion book in our comments section below!
