Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The Call of the Osprey is a new book by the Childrens Book Council prize-winning duo, Norman Jorgensen and Brian Harrison-Lever. This time they have used their considerable talents to tell the story of an old retired sea captain who rescues an abandoned paddle steamer and rebuilds it with the help of a young boy, Tom. Over several years the Captain and Tom work together to restore the boat to its former glory, and as the boat is gradually rebuilt, so their relationship deepens. Finally, when the boat is ready to be re-launched, the Captain, realizing his life is coming to an end, hands over the reins to Tom who, now a young man, is ready to accept the responsibility of captain. Beautifully illustrated with the exquisite watercolor paintings of Brian Harrison-Lever, this book is a timeless story of love and friendship that will be passed down from generation to generation. Shortlisted for the 2004 Western Australia Premiers Books Awards
