When Storm Boy goes walking along the beach or over the sandhills, or in the sanctuary the birds are not afraid. They know he is a friend.
He lives with his father, Hideway Tom in a humpy made of brush and wood. One day a group of young pelicans decide to come to visit Storm Boy and Hideaway.
With their friend Fingerbone they name them? Mr Proud, Mr Ponder and Mr Percival. When two of them leave, Mr Percival stays to live with them and Storm Boy and the pelican become best friends.
In return Mr Percival helps to rescue a shipwrecked fishing crew. This moving story became a magical film and is now one of the classics of Australian writing for children.
