I decided to read this book because I wanted to watch the movie and so I had to read the book before I watched the movie. Both the book and the movie was awesome.
This book has such a good plot and teaches you how friendships can form through tough times and that any one can learn how to fly if you just believe. Kathryn Lasky is such a good writer and story teller. She knows and must have researched so much about owls. This book was very knowledgable and I learned a lot about owls. Like did you know hows have gizzards and thats what helps digest their food. I really loved this book. Soren was thrown into a situation that he couldn't even imagine was happening to him. He meets Glyfie a spunky little elf owl that becomes his friend. Soren is quiet but eventually becomes confident through out the book and Glyfie helps him do that.
This story was such a great opener to this series and I can't wait to read the next books. Soren and Glyfie make you want to go on the adventure with them. I am excited to see what happens to them.
The movie was different from the book, but was still a good movie. I don't know if the movie had more than just the first book in it but I guess I will find out when I read the other books. The story in the movie was awesome and had a ton of action. If you want to read the book and watch the movie I definately recommend that you go and check them out. Overall I give both 5 out of 5 stars. You definitely won't be disappointed. An awesome light read. =]
Til next time,
