Publisher's Summary

One of Australia's favourite stories for children, now a major motion picture 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.

skip the movie - the book is amazing

I was dissapointed with the 2019 film and thought I should re-visit the book to see if it was all that I remembered it to be. The book leaves the film in the dust. It is gentler than the film. Thiele deals with big themes in a way that is accessible to both kids and adults. This reading is lovely. Full marks.

Can smell the salt of the Coorong, can taste the salt of the tears.
