Guardians of Ga'Hoole

HAVE YOU READ THE BOOKS? Read them before the movie comes out on Sept. 24!

The film is based on the first three installments of the book series: The Capture, The Journey, and The Rescue.

Acclaimed filmmaker Zack Snyder makes his animation debut with the fantasy family adventure "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" based on the beloved Guardians of Ga'Hoole books by Kathryn Lasky. The film follows Soren, a young owl enthralled by his father's epic stories of the Guardians of Ga' Hoole, a mythic band of winged warriors who had fought a great battle to save all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones.

While Soren dreams of someday joining his heroes, his older brother, Kludd, scoffs at the notion, and yearns to hunt, fly and steal his father's favor from his younger sibling. But Kludd's jealousy has terrible consequences-causing both owlets to fall from their treetop home and right into the talons of the Pure Ones. Now it is up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave young owls. Together they soar across the sea and through the mist to find the Great Tree, home of the legendary Guardians-Soren's only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdoms.

Some fun stuff to explore:

'Call Me Artemis Fowl', Artemis Rocks!

Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex by Eoin (it's pronounced Owen) Colfer is here! It's the seventh book in the series - check it out today!

Learn more about the books at the very cool Artemis Fowl website. Described by their author as "Die Hard with fairies...," the Artemis Fowl books are funny, high-tech, and fast-paced. Artemis is a teenage criminal mastermind, genius, and billionaire who begins his adventures by kidnapping a fairy - unfortunately for him, not just any fairy, but Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These fairies aren't the fairies from fairy tales - they are smart and often deadly! Watch the book trailer above and you'll get a feel for the books (the images are from the Artemis Fowl graphic novel). Well, sort of. You've just got to read them to find out!
