Owls in the Family
Farley Mowat's funniest book tells the adventures of Wol and Weeps, two owls from Saskatchewan who shake up a whole neighborhood, turn a house upside down, and outsmart Mutt, the dog hero of The Dog Who Wouldn't Be. Wol brings dead skunks to the family dinner table and terrorizes the minister, the postman, and the French teacher. Weeps is a comical bird, afraid of everything except Mutt, and he never does learn how to fly. Here is the heartwarming story of how a boy named Billy finds Wol and Weeps and unwittingly adds two new members to his family.
