I gave it a five star rating as it was a great read
Storm Boy is a young child of 10yrs old he finds a pelican that he saved
He was called Mr Percivil that was his friend
Mr Percervil saved some sailors out in a storm so the sailors said about putting Storm Boy to school
In the meantime Mr Percivil tried to stop hunters from shooting birds and got shot himself and a few days later he died and buried him in the sandhills and ended up going to school
It was a great short read the movie years ago was good and sad
One of Australia's favourite stories for children, now a major motion picture.
Storm boy and his father live alone in a humpy among the sandhills between the Southern Ocean and the Coorong - a lonely, narrow waterway that runs parallel to a long stretch of the South Australian coast. Among the teeming birdlife of the Coorong, Storm Boy finds an injured young pelican whose life he saves. From then on, Storm boy and Mr Percival the pelican become inseparable friends and spend their days exploring the wave-beaten shore and the drifting sandhills. Mr Percival learns to help Storm Boy's father with his fishing and warn the other birdlife whenever poachers are coming, but his part in rescuing a shipwrecked crew leads to great changes in Storm Boy's life.
