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!

So for example, if you're fifteen your range would be minimum 14 1/2, and your maximum would be 16. What is your method for <14 year olds, as well as 14 year olds themselves, as well as >16 year olds? My "method" is simple. Beginning at a suitable age, say 11, simply add two until you reach 15. Then, the age method is contingent upon the exact nature of the relationship, as well as the particular state's AOC. (Note, some states have very relaxed AOC's, so this method may not be suitable for all cases....this is based upon an AOC of 18) I don't do math, lololol. If I like you, I like you, normally though, I'd say 3 years older, while you're in school, then when you get out into "the real world" it can go up to as far as you want to. The thing is though, in some states, anything past holding hands can potentially be illegal if, using your method, one is 16 and the other is 19. That's only three years. However you are right, but I wouldn't use my method until I'm outta school. And besides, normally like them my age or a year or two older. 3 years can make a huge difference. Fifteen and Eighteen, Fourteen and Seventeen, Twelve and Fifteen etc. Yes. but think about it 23-26, that's not a big difference when you get outta school. Nobody will look at you weird, maybe for when you're in school. but out of school age is just a number.

Like having a Manic episode, depression. Stuff like that. Is that not Happy.Sad.Happy.? Happiness can be a form of Mania, which does actually mean happy.sad.happy. Yes, but there is also a...kinda like an angry manic mood. Where you're more easily annoyed and sometimes more likely to be violent. I know anger can be associated with Mania, but isn't that also angry.sad.angry.? Also, not all Mania Is shown by anger, maybe in your personal life there has been this, but it is not always the case.
