Description of this Book

This 55th anniversary edition of the Colin Thiele classic is being released to coincide with a new major movie remake of Storm Boy starring Jai Courtney and Geoffrey Rush.
Storm Boy is the timeless story of Mike "Storm Boy" Kingley who rescues three pelican chicks after their mother is shot. One of the birds, Mr Percival, forms a very special bond with the boy which brings into focus the conflict between his lifestyle in the remote Coorong of South Australia and the external pressures of society including his schooling.

Treasured by generations of children, this is a heartwarming- tale about unusual friendship and unconditional love.
