One of Australia's favourite stories for children, now a major motion picture starring Jai Courtney and Geoffrey Rush.

Storm Boy is the timeless story of Mike 'Storm Boy' Kingley, who rescues three pelican chicks after their mother is shot. One of the birds, Mr Percival, forms a very special bond with the boy which brings into focus the conflict between his lifestyle in the remote Coorong of South Australia and the external pressures of society, including his schooling.

Treasured by generations of children, this is a heartwarming tale about unusual friendship and unconditional love.
