Teaser Tuesday - The Guardian's of Ga'Hoole: The Journey

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I'm currently reading the 2nd book of the Guardian's of Ga'Hoole, The Journey, by Kathryn Lasky.  For me, this series was suprisingly deep, for what I expected to be a rather light children's story. 

So here's my teaser from page 29 of this book:

They were, of course worried they might have lost the Hoole, but if they had their doubts, they dared not even think about them for a sliver of a second.  For doubts, each one feared in the deepest parts of their quivering gizzards, might be like an owl sickness - like grayscale or beak rot - contagious and able to spread from owl to owl.


  1. My daughter's reading the first in the series now. What she's told me so far has been a little confusing.

  2. Lovely. That sounds like a nice change from what I'm reading now.


  3. I hope the owls are not ill. I heard this is a great book. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/09/teaser-tuesdays-pretty-little-things.html

  4. I may need to try these...the movie looked awfully good too.

    Here's my teaser: The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

  5. I've been curious about these books. Great teaser! My TT from Paranormalcy is here.

    From the Shadows

  6. What is this Hoole?

    And that owl on the cover reminds me of Hedwig. :)

  7. Sounds pretty intense...but when I saw the cover I was like: 'Yay, looks like HP'

    thx for the lovely comment...I'm a new follower^^


  8. Oh good, glad I'm not the only one who thought about Hedwig. Guess Harry Potter is the only place I've really seen owls play a part in a book, until now. Will have to look in to these. Thanks for sharing.
