The first set of three books have been made in to a movie that will be in the theaters September 24.



The Forest of Tyto is where Barn Owls dwell, and Soren is three weeks old when he is snatched by patrols of evil owls and taken to a canyon named St. Aegoluis. A variety of owls have been snatched from the various owl kingdoms: Great Horned Owl, Great Gray Owl, Western Screech Owl, Snowy Owl, Long-eared Owl, Elf Owl, Burrowing Owl, and Barn Owl. These young owls are made to labor--they are enslaved.
Soren and his friends think only of escaping, but they first must learn to fly.

I have a great love for owls! I have noticed themes of owls: from notebooks, to lunch kits, to fictional book themes, to jewelry; owls seem to be everywhere!

I felt this book was exceptional in teaching a lesson in encouragement and steadfastness in helping others.
Soren is a knightly character, he has chivalry--courtesy, honor, generosity, and bravery.
I loved this book, I noticed that on the Scholastic website there is an activity link for teachers. 

Blissful Reading!
Annette
