Book review on Guardians Of Ga'Hoole Series

The book is great and I really recommend this book to kids around the world. This book isn't very popular for some reason, but it deserves to be. There is a bit of violence but the rest is ok.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
age 11+

this is for the continuing series for this owl series, Wolves of the beyond, so listen up pups!

Wolves of the beyond is a great series, im getting book one but in the prologue i read from google, a young pup is born with his siblings, then a well trained Obea takes a newborn wolf pup with a splayed paw to die on a block of ice, then the ice breaks away, the pup survives, and a sad grizzly bear who was a mother of three cubs sees that the lost abandon pup was a gift from the river, so the bear had lost all three cubs, the last one due to mountain lions. So the bear took care of the wolf, at some point in the series the bear dies, the pup has to live in a pack with his own kind.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
