Young Owls Find Great Ga'hoole Tree

The Guardians of Ga'hoole: The Journey

DON'T BE AFRAID TO TAKE RISKS

If you don't try, how will you know what the outcome is? "Don't look directly into the moon." Gylfie in that statement was warning Soren of how looking into the moon, you will become moon-blinked. This applies to the theme because if Gylfie hadn't tried to look away, she would've have still been stuck there. "Always trust your gizzard." In our terms, it means always trust your instincts. Soren said this from experience while he was beginning his journey. Another book that has this theme is in the Bartimeaus trilogy. A young boy tries to summons a dark creature, impressing himself and the demon.

A TEAM OF TWO INCREASES INTO A TEAM OF FOUR, ACTING AS ONE

The book starts of with a young owlet, Soren, being pushed out of a tree by his brother. From the ground, he is capture by evil owls, St. Aggies Patrol. At the "academy", or the hostage, he meets Gylfie, a young talkative bright owl. With Gylfie by his side, Soren escapes to find new friends, Digger and Twilight. The four owls from there set off on a great journey to the Great Ga'hoole Tree.
