by | Read by Max Louis

Children Ages 6+ • 2 hrs. • Abridged • © 1964

Max Louis's masterful narration will transport listeners to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where Billy and his friends explore the prairies. Louis's pace and tone skillfully follow Billy as he goes in search of an owlet to add to his menagerie of wild animals. Listeners will hear how Billy rescues two owlets he names Wol and Weep. The two owls have many comical run-ins with almost everyone in town. All the owls’ adventures are told with wry humor—from bringing dead skunks to the dinner table and frightening Billy's teacher to riding in the family's car. Based on the author's own childhood, this is a great story for the whole family and an ideal one for adventuresome boys. L.A.C. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
