Neither realism nor fantasy, this dismal series opener is marred by clichéd characters and a plot evidently unaware of its darker implications.

Synopsis

A shy girl teaches a wild boy the ways of modern living in Wild Child: Forest's First Home, the first book in this sweet and funny chapter book series!

On a family camping trip, Olive Regle encounters Forest, a young boy who has grown up in the wild. Olive’s father agrees to let Forest move in under the condition that Olive teach Forest everything about proper behavior. He’s never sat at a table, brushed his teeth, or even taken a bath before! It’s a lot to learn, and Olive’s brother, Ryan, isn’t helping—he tells Forest that football should be played inside.

Can this wild child ever fit in?

Don’t miss Olive’s and Forest’s next adventure Wild Child: Forest’s First Day of School!
