SummaryAdd a Summary
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? In Farley Mowat's novel, published in 1961, a young boy's pet menagerie (of dogs, gophers and white rats) grows out of control with the addition of two troublesome pet owls. The story of how Wol and Weeps turn the whole town upside down is warm, funny and bursting with adventure and suspense.

"Sometimes it took Wol an hour or more to cross the lawn; but he did it so quietly and cautiously that Mutt never really had a chance.
When he had sneaked up close enough, Wol would raise one big foot and -- very, very gently -- lower it over the end of Mutt's long and bushy tail. Then Wol would let out a piercing scream and at the same moment he would give the tail a good hard squeeze."
