Description

Every child needs to have a pet. No one could argue with that. But what happens when your pet is an owl, and your owl is terrorizing the neighbourhood? Owls in the Family is a delightfuly treasure to be read again and again, now available as a Penguin Modern Classic.


In this exciting story for young readers, a boy's pet menagerie, which includes crows, magpies, gophers and a dog, grows out of control with the addition of two cantankerous pet owls. The story of how Wol and Weeps turn the whole town upside down is warm, funny, and bursting with adventure and suspense.
