Series: Guardians of Ga'Hoole (Book #1)
by Kathryn Lasky

Ga'Hoole is a classic hero mythology about the fight between good and evil.  After Soren, a young owlet, is pushed from his family's nest by his older brother, he's plucked from the forest floor by agents from a mysterious school, the St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls. When Soren arrives at St. Aggie's, he suspects there is more to the school than meets the eye. He and his new friend, the clever and scrappy Gylfie, find out that St. Aggie's is actually a training camp where the school's leader can groom young owls to help achieve her goal: to rule the entire owl kingdom.
