Third in the Guardians series, this book reintroduces us to Soren, a barn owl, who must search for his beloved teacher, Ezylryb, while also pursuing a mysterious villain, Metal Beak. Pamela Garelick narrates the tale, clearly and confidently pronouncing all the names one might stumble over in print. She delivers the depth of personality Lasky has invested in her flock of owls and energetically leads us through the plot twists. Garelick's distinguished yet likable voice is simply wonderful—her lively characterizations of little owls and maternally inclined snakes all delight. She's also expert at recapping the owl's complex history so that it's clear to new listeners, yet fresh for the already familiar. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
