LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS: THE OWLS OF GA’HOOLE by Kathryn Lasky (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “Film fans will flock to libraries in search of Lasky’s Guardians of Ga’Hoole series...” (School Library Journal) Soren is born in the forest of Tyto, a tranquil kingdom where the Barn Owls dwell. Suddenly he is kidnapped and imprisoned. Now he must find a way to return to his family and to protect the owl world from unimaginable danger. Drawn from the eight-book Guardians of Ga’Hoole series, this collection contains the first three books, the basis of the movie, Legend of the Guardians. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, Pamela Garelick. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “The fantasy’s strong believability and fascinating plot make this series a must-read for fantasy-lovers.” (Children’s Literature) • EXPERIENCE.
