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 neighborhood? In Farley Mowat's exciting children's story, a young 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.
