Young Billy has pets, including crows, gophers, magpies, and a dog. But what happens when he unwittingly adds two more to the bunch–two baby owls that grow up to terrorize the neighborhood? This book tells the adventures of Billy and his out-of-control owls, Wol and Weeps. Wol brings dead skunks to the family dinner table and terrorizes the minister, the postman, and the French teacher. Weeps is a comical bird, afraid of everything except the family dog, and he never does learn how to fly.
Children will want to read this comical, heartwarming story over and over.
