Lockie Leonard - Series 2
After an endless summer, Lockie Leonard gets ready for another year in Angelus - the middle of nowhere. But, how will this year be any different? Will it be more of the same, or will it be new and improved?
If it’s any comfort, his family and friends are as weird as ever. His dad, the local Police Sergeant, maintains that the best weapon against crime prevention is a poem. His mum remains frighteningly understanding, while little brother and frontier scientist, Philip, has been fast-tracked to high school one year early... opening the door to a whole new world of humiliation. As for Egg? Even though he’s still a total metalhead, he’s also still the best friend Lockie could ever ask for.
Then there’s Vicki Streeton. As in, the girl who owns a lifetime membership to Lockie’s heart. Right after they finally told each other what they needed to say, she disappeared on a family holiday - and is yet to return. It’s fair to say that Lockie’s not entirely sure what the future has in store for them.
But that’s what Lockie is about to find out. You can never really know what’s coming up - the future just happens. Even when you think you have it all sussed, something else - a bigger question - is lurking around the corner. Friends you thought you’d have forever, can drift out of your life. Meanwhile, new people can blow into your life, changing everything.
At least one thing is certain. Angelus still has the best surf that Lockie Leonard (surf legend in the making), has ever seen. So, why would he want to be anywhere else?
Based on the award-winning novels by author Tim Winton, the critically acclaimed first series of Lockie Leonard won AFI, ATOM and LOGIE Awards for Best Children’s Series and garnered an International BAFTA nomination.
Set against the backdrop of the spectacular south coast of Western Australia, the second series of Lockie Leonard features the trademark wit, physical humour, emotional depth and acute observations of the first series, again guaranteeing entertainment for children and their parents, alike.
