Funny!! My family and I howled at Farley's adventures with his wild pets. What a character. The book is funny in contrast to our (boring, ordinary) lives.

Reflecting the social values of the author's childhood in Saskatoon in the 1930s, the wild egg stealing, crow massacring, and free-ranging children may disturb many contemporary readers. The only improvement to this reissue would be the addition of simple sketches of owls, gophers, and "Mowat's Prairie Schooner" to compliment the text (similar to the books by E.T. Seton).

This was a good book that I would recommend to people. I liked learning about Wol's and Weeps' behaviours. I liked the funny parts as well as the parts where I felt touched.

Fun book, especially if you grew up in western Canada.

This is the funny and touching story of Wol and Weeps, great horned owls that create mayhem when they are adopted by two young boys. When owls take over both a house and a neighbourhood, there's no telling what might happen!

As enjoyable to read as an adult as I remember from my elementary. I like Mr. Mowat's Canadian colloquisisms.

I read this book to my son when he was younger and we both thoroughly enjoyed the story and had a lot of laughs also! A great book for all ages!

Great read aloud with a strong sense of place from northern writer Mowat. Humorous tales of raising two owls in the high prairie town of Saskatoon as a youth.

Very funny and a great story but I sometimes wonder how much is true. I somehow get the feeling Mowat is taking a bit of creative license here and there. Makes me wish I lived on the prairies with gophers.
