I really loved the little bits and pieces of worldbuilding they didn't get to include in the novel! My favourite was air. Who knew the Southern Air Temple was called Jongmu? And the Air Nomad designs...omg

Are these books canon?

Avatar the Last Airbender, book 1
episodes divided in 4 element-related sections

It's sweet if you're a fan of Avatarverse, but the writing style is very simple, not novel-like, no emotional explaining. just telling the stories briefly.
Katara, Aang, Sokka & Zuko are the narrators, in between, some information about all the nations & their cultures.

though I expected to read something other than the episodes, but you know I always appreciate to see a good novelization of my favourite shows, to read the plot on paper.
good times.

I was really disappointed in this. I was hoping for new avatar tales, not summaries of previously aired episodes in the show. the information about the culture and world of avatar was interesting, but nothing I didn't already know. disappointing when the show and the new series of graphic novels are so rich with detail and engaging stories. this was a fail.
