Read The Guardians of Ga’Hoole before seeing the movie!

It’s no secret we love books here at Novel Novice (DUH!) … but we also love a good movie, especially one that’s an adaptation of a book. But as always, we think you should read the book first.

So with that in mind, we’re really excited to present a new contest sponsored by Scholastic, ahead of the September 24th theatrical release of “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.”

The movie is based on Kathryn Lasky’s novel, Guardians of Ga’Hoole: The Capture — the first in a series. Now we’ve got your chance to win the book, and a little something extra, before the movie comes out. Keep reading for details …

About the Book – Guardians of Ga’Hoole: The Capture

When Soren, a young owlet, mysteriously falls from his nest one evening, he’s plucked up and taken to the sinister St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls. Once there, he must use his wits and bravery to escape his captors. If Soren can learn to fly, he might just be able to take refuge with a group of brave owls he’d thought only to be a legend—the Guardians of Ga’Hoole!

Also from Kathryn Lasky – Wolves of the Beyond: Lone Wolf

In the harsh wilderness beyond Ga’Hoole, a wolf mother hides in fear. Her newborn pup, otherwise healthy, has a twisted leg. The mother knows the rigid rules of her kind. The pack cannot have weakness. Her pup must be abandoned on a desolate hill—condemned to die. But alone in the forest, the pup, Faolan, does the unthinkable. He survives. This is his story—the story of the wolf pup who rises up to change forever the Wolves of the Beyond. Find out more at
