Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"An unforgettable story." --Starred, Booklist

"Nature and civilization collide in this thought-provoking picture book based on the story of a boy discovered living alone in the mountain forests of southern France in 1800 . . . Young readers will be fascinated, perhaps even spurred to further investigate the facts behind the story." --Starred, Publishers Weekly
