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.
For over fifty years Australian children have been captivated by this timeless,
unforgettable tale of friendship. Commended by the Children's Book Council of
Australia in 1964, adapted
