"The story's fast pace, menacing bad guys, and flashes of humor make this a good choice for reluctant readers, while the underlying message about the power of legends provides a unifying element and gives strong appeal for fantasy fans." (School Library Journal)
My 8-year old loves this series, and I think it's a good family listen. But the singing is gawdawful. Fortunately the later books have much less of it.
The singing. It could have been much improved if they had a composer actually score the songs instead of having her fake her way through. Not an appealing, memorable tune in the whole series. That might have made her voice tolerable.
My daughter would love to listen to a Book Five.
My eight-year old and I listened to the first eight Guardians of Ga'Hoole books and enjoyed them all immensely. Being a bird lover, these tales are especially fun and for weeks on end, our world became the world of the Guardians. Pamela Garelick's narration is very good; only her voice for Gyflie was a bit annoying (the voice was very high) though I got used to it. Unfortunately, the next seven books have not yet been recorded so we're reading them ourselves!
