Storm Boy is one of the classics of Australian writing for children. This edition is illustrated with paintings by artist Robert Ingpen that capture the wave-beaten shore and windswept sandhills of the Coorong in South Australia, home of Storm boy and the pelican Mr Percival. Storm Boy saves the life of Mr Percival, and in return the pelican helps Storm boy¿s father with his fishing and joins in the rescue of a shipwrecked crew. The boy and the pelican prove friends to the end.
