The Guardians of Ga'Hoole: The Capture

What do you get when you take an owl, give him human characteristics and then send him on an amazing adventure? You get Kathryn Lasky's Guardians of Ga'Hoole series. The Capture is the first book in this series, which recently became a full-length motion picture that premieres on September 24!


Soren's Story

Soren is a young barn owl who finds himself on the forest floor one night while his parents are away hunting. Only a few weeks old and not able to fly, Soren knows that he's in a lot of danger and figures he probably won't survive the night. But suddenly he's scooped up and taken to a place called St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls, where lots of baby owls like himself live, except they're known by numbers instead of names.


Right from the very start, Soren has a funny feeling that something about the academy isn't quite right. In fact, his friend Gylfie, a small elf owl at the academy, thinks the exact same thing! Oh well, Soren figures he can deal with it until he learns how to fly, and then he can make his escape...


Unfortunately, it's not quite that easy. Soren also needs to avoid being moonblinked, or brainwashed. As it turns out, the academy's real goal is to control all of the owl kingdoms on earth...and not in a good way, either. So it's up to Soren to learn to fly, avoid the brainwashing and escape in order to save the owl kingdoms. Guided by fear, hope and loss, the little owls work toward finding answers and gaining their freedom.


Give A Hoot

This is an absolutely amazing, incredible book! Jathryn Lasky makes all the characters so believable, and you really find yourself caring for each of the little owls, and worrying about what will happen to them in the end. So what if they're not humans - the characteristics they're given by the author in this book make them as real and believable as any human character, and we can't wait to read more books about owls in this fantastic series!

Well, they should because of the community, in my opinion. Even though this site is "meant for kids", almost everyone I've met is very mature and friendly. Bullies and trolls are very rare, and there are lots of things to do with lots of people.

"According to the famous theory in quantum mechanics, 'The universe doesn't exist if we stop looking at it,' which argues that a particle's past behavior changes based on what we see. Last year, scientists performed a new experiment proving this theory to be true on the scale of atoms.   'The bizarre nature of reality as laid out by quantum theory has survived another test, with scientists performing a famous experiment and proving that reality does not exist until it is measured.'   According to the rules of quantum mechanics, the boundary between the 'world out there' and our own subjective consciousness are blurred. When physicists look at atoms or particles of light, what they see depends on how they have set up their experiment. To test this, physicists at the Australian National University recently conducted what is known as the John Wheeler's delayed-choice thought experiment. The experiment involves a moving object that is given the choice to act like a particle or a wave. Wheeler's experiment then asks - at which point does the object decide? Common sense says the object is either wave-like or particle-like, independent of how we measure it. But quantum physics predicts that whether you observe wave like behavior or particle behavior depends only on how it is actually measured at the end of its journey. 'It proves that measurement is everything. At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it,' said Associate Professor Andrew Truscott. Despite the apparent weirdness, the results confirm the validity of quantum theory. Quantum theory governs the world of the very small, and has enabled the development of many technologies such as LEDs, lasers and computer chips. The ĀNU reversed Wheeler's original concept of light beams being bounced by mirrors, and instead used atoms scattered by laser light."
