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.
