код для вставкиСкачать
The two boys Billy and Bruce are out on a hot
summer day searching for a baby pet owl of their
own. Then a crow keeps crowing and crowing on a
wooden pole, Then Bruce gets irritated and goes
up to the crows nest and takes its eggs and slips
when he’s coming down from the tree and falls on
his bottom and swallows some of the crow eggs.
And starts spitting them out all over the ground
meanwhile Billy is dying of laughter.
Since Bruce hates the taste crow’s eggs so much he
decides that its lunch time for today.
So when they decided to eat lunch Bruce had a
lemon and some sardine sandwiches meanwhile Billy
is eating (also) a sandwich but not a lemon an
orange well enough about their lunch. Next the
two boys saw an owls nest with TONS of crows
around it the crows were swarming around this
owls nest mad as ever.
So Bruce and Billy went to go shoo away the crows
from the great horned owl. The crows flew away
as fast as they could after Bruce and Billy came
over there.
Bruce and Billy are walking home when Bruce says
“LOOKEE!!” and he sees an owls nest then Billy
says “I bet that’s just an old crows nest” and the
boys are too tired to climb up the tree so they
decide to bring back their teacher Mr. Miller to
look at it with them tomorrow. The next day
Billy, Murray, Bruce and Mr. Miller go back to
the owls nest. Mr. Miller climbs up the tree and
puts a tent on a branch. Next Mr. Miller climbs
into the tent and sticks his camera threw the hole
meanwhile Billy, Murray and Bruce are going on a
walk. The owl next swoops down and claws at Mr.
Miller’s tree tent. And Mr. Miller falls out of the
Next a big storm comes and knocks the owls nest
out of the tree and the next day Bruce and Billy
go and look for the owls nest its broken on the
ground with 2 dead owls in it. They plan to have a
funeral for the owls. While their looking for the
right sticks for the cross Billy steps on a pile of
sticks with an unhealthy owl under it Billy picks up
the owl and the owl nips at Billy and squawks.
Billy & Bruce feed the owl and care for him and the
owl gives them his trust and follows them home.
The next morning Billy’s dad is nagging of how
Billy has too many pets then says “Actually maybe
we need an owl in this family but NO more pets
The next day Billy goes on a bike ride and sees 2
kids throwing rocks into a barrel and one kid says
hey Billy come over and join the fun so Billy goes
over there and looks into the barrel and sees an
unhealthy owl and trades it for a scout knife.
Billy brings the owl home and cares for it and cleans
it up and puts it into the cage with the other owl
Wol and names this owl Weeps. Wol and Weeps
turn out to like each other a lot. The cage has a
tree and grass and Wol really likes it but enough
about the cage back to the story.
Bruce and Billy enter in a pet parade with Billy’s
pets he has 30 gophers, Gartner snakes, Rabbits,
Snakes, Pigeons and a dog and also Bruce brings his
dog and a surprise pet. They decide to dress the
owls up with doll clothing and the paint black and
white strips on Bruce’s dog so he looks like a
zebra. And they use paint and other things to
dress Billy’s dog up like a warrior. And the also
use Billy’s old express wagon for the circus cage.
They didn’t win the parade but they did have a
really fun time when Bruce’s “surprise pet”
(rattlesnake) got loose. But the rattlesnake is
really old and lost its sting.
Mutt didn’t really care about Wol and Weeps but he
was kind of jealous. Whenever Weeps was let out
of his cage he would always search around for
Mutt and when he found him Weeps would give a
whoop of relief and walk over to his protectors
side and they would snuggle up together. Weeps
was so helpless that Mutt would protect him from
all the other neighborhood dogs. Weeps hated
letting Mutt out of his sight for one second
Next the two boys, their owls and dogs go to their
secret cave. And they tell all about a Indian who
was being chased by Mounties and how he hung
himself so he wouldn’t get caught alive find out
more by reading the book. Then two older boys
come along and say “Hey we heard you have a
cave around here somewhere your to young to
have a cave tell us where it is or we’ll twist your
arm right off!” Then Wol gave a Hooting scare
and those boys were out of their in a second.
One midsummer day they have a visit from their church
minister he was new to Saskatoon so he didn’t know
about their owls. The minister sat down on the sofa
with his tea, balanced his knee and started to talk
to Billy’s mother about skipping Sunday school. Wol
had been off on an expedition by the riverbank.
When he got home he ambled across the lawn,
hopped up on one of the living room window ledges
and peered threw the window at the fancy dressed
stranger. Next thing you know Wol had just landed
heavily on the Ministers shoulder. Wol was peering
around the strangers face making friendly hooting
noises instead of answering back the minister made a
startled scream and was out of that house in one
second running to his car and driving away.
Thirty miles out of Saskatoon was a little town
called Dundurn. Every summer they would camp
out there in their caravan. They would tow the
caravan behind their model a ford. The caravan
was fixed up like a little pirates ship with ship
A ships galley (which is what sailors call kitchens),
ships lamps and a ships clock. On deck (the roof)
there was even a little mast to call it Mowat’s
Prairie Schooner. Of course whenever we took the
caravan trip Mutt and the owls had to come along
so my friends, the owls and Mutt used to ride in
the car and sometimes people would follow us just
to make sure they weren’t seeing things.
The summer when Wol and Weeps became three
years old it was a very sad spring for me we had
to leave Saskatoon and go to Ontario, Toronto.
There were no sloughs, no gophers, no bluffs and
worst of all no prairies! They couldn’t take Weeps
and Wol because they hated the idea of them
being locked up in a cage all the time and that
would just be cruel. And they couldn’t just let
them loose either because they were part of a
human family for so long they couldn’t take care
of themselves. So they were going to give the
owls to Bruce and his new farm.
Billy showed the letter to his father and he said
“sounds fine Billy what do you say we drive the
owls up to Bruce’s on Friday” Billy said, “yes of
course”. And that’s what they did. It was a
wonderful trip to Bruce’s. On Saturday Bruce and
Billy went horse riding. They were riding all over
the prairie that day. On Sunday Bruce and Billy
finished up the cage for the owls. Wol and Weeps
didn’t suspect anything they were having to much
fun to be suspicious. Sunday night they put the
two owls in their cage and Billy said, “Good-bye
old owls you look after each other someday maybe
I’ll be back to visit you and Bruce”.

Did you know owls and crows hate each other?
Did you know Billy and Bruce have a friend named
Did you know owls don’t like skunks?
Did you know that in this book Wol (the owl) scared
the maid Offy away?
Did you know that Wol and Mutt liked to play
The ending of the story ended when Billy was putting
the owls in their cage and was saying goodbye to
them and that he might come and see them
again. I would recommend this book for ages
5 – 12 because it’s a really good book and a little bit
funny too. So read the book for more details.
I really like this book, I would rate this book
(Three stars)
