HOW THE OWL GOT ITS SOUND
How the Owl Got its Sound is a story about a brave boy who speaks to the spirits of the forest and finds a way to save his village.
Tracy-Lee enjoys writing for children because storytelling is a wonderful way to connect with them and also, because the possibilities are endless when it comes to creating imaginative tales.
The story of How the Owl Got its Sound came about because of her fascination with an owl that lived in a tree outside her bedroom window. Then one day, a friend told her how owls were introduced to Alexander township in an effort to help with an ever-growing rat infestation and how the locals were not happy about this, many believing it to be an act of witchcraft. In that moment her story was born.
