Owl : A Novel

ORWIN, JOANNA

Notes
Owl and Tama could hardly be more different: Owl is trying to help his family
run their struggling farm, while getting used to life without his father, and Tama is a disgruntled
city kid. Tama's arrival coincides with Owl's discovery of some Maori cave drawings. Owl's interest in
the rock art, and the tension between him and Tama, somehow unleash a disturbing malevolence from the
past. Together they have set free the forces of the ancient myth of the Pouaki, a brutal man-eater bent
on destruction. Suggested level: secondary.
