The Wild Boy
Preview: Hear it

Once there was a boy who lived in the mountain forests of southern France. He lived completely alone, without mother, father, or friends. He didnt know what a mother or father was. He was naked. He didnt know what clothes were. He didnt know he was a boy, or even a person. He didnt know what people were. He was completely wild. In simple prose and an abundance of sharp, vivid illustrations that capture the energy of youth, this extraordinarily touching picture book brings to life the child who was Victor in a way that will delight and engage young readers.
