I'm not sure how I feel about rating this. In truth if it was the book alone and the show didn't exist I would've rated it lower. It takes a damn fine story and turns out a bit of mush. It's true something is lost here and I don't really know why. The stories that are retold from the show are the worst part. It's actually the biggest part and so glaringly bad it makes it harder to enjoy the book on a whole. I actually stopped attempting to read them and just remembered what it felt like to watch ...more
Four sacred and dangerous scrolls have been complied into this single book, detailing the adventures of Aang and his friends. The Fire Nation has waged war against the rest of the world for one hundred years, unhindered by the peacekeeping Avatar. Then Katara and her brother, Sokka, discover a young Airbender named Aang. Could he be the one the whole world has been looking for? And will he be able to face his destiny?

So, this particular book is actually a collection of four books. This collectio
I love Avatar: The Last Airbender and this books reads like the Nickelodeon animated series of the same name; it's so awesome and best of all it has the coolest characters from the franchise (unlike the new series **coughs** Korra). I love Avatar Aang, but Zuko is my hands-down favorite.
as the description notes, the Lost Scrolls Collection includes all 4 of the Sacred Tales.
while the "tales" part of the book is rather dull (being that they're just recounted from various episodes in Book 1: Water) the sections pertaining to the world of Avatar and the four nations is quite enjoyable.
if nothing more, fans of the series should pick this up, thumb past the stories and check out the extra information that wasn't all included in the cartoon.
personally i was hoping that they'd release
This book contains both episode novelizations and little bits of information about each nation and its bending. The novelizations - terrible (for more information, see my review of The Earth Kingdom Chronicles Collection: Tales 1-4). The little bits of information - good. There was much to be praised, but also much conflict of canon between the show and this book. The information given for each nation, although useful, left much to be desired in day-to-day culture and practices.

Overall, I did e
The retellings of various season 1 episodes didn't add much (and, in fact, were often less interesting than the televised version of the story), but the sections that gave more in-depth information about the four societies in the Avatar world were worth reading.

Although aimed at younger readers The Lost Scrolls was still a nice reference book for various aspects of the series.
