Boo and the Big Storm

The Story Line

When little Boo, a Boobook owlet, is blown out of her nest during a storm, she lands in the middle of the road and doesn’t quite know what to do.

She is scared. Really scared. On his way home that evening, Farmer Goodman stops to rescue her. Now she’s even more scared – is he a monster?

But she feels better when he gives her delicious insects to eat. Through a window she sees her parents searching for her but they can’t see her.

She calls and calls but they can’t hear her. How will she ever get home?
