This book was written after an extraordinary amount of research and the author is meticulous in her following of fact as she works to lay out this boy's life as a narrated story. T.B. Ering's illustrations are perfect (as usual). Read it for what it is--a well told piece of history that tells a touching tale that can be at times revolting and, at other times, fascinating.
My nine year old daughter and I read this book at the same time. I did so while she was at school. Neither of us could put it down. Such a fascinating story. It appealed to me because we are Francophiles and thinking about a trip to France next year. An added bonus was that it included education methods used with Deaf children in the early 1800s which I find interesting as I used to teach Deafblind adults.
I think my daughter enjoyed the idea of a child living in the wild all alone and surviving this way until he was found at the age of nine.
