Synopsis

Out of the Woods by Rebecca Bond

Antonio Willie Giroux lived in a hotel his mother ran on the edge of a lake. He loved to explore the woods and look for animals, but they always remained hidden away. One hot, dry summer, when Antonio was almost five, disaster struck: a fire rushed through the forest. Everyone ran to the lake - the only safe place in town - and stood knee-deep in water as they watched the fire. Then, slowly, animals emerged from their forest home and joined the people in the water. Miraculously, the hotel did not burn down, and the animals rebuilt their homes in the forest - but Antonio never forgot the time when he watched the distance between people and animals disappear.

Reviews

A story valuable both as a glimpse into a bygone way of life and a record of a surreal, singular moment.

Awe-inspiring, exquisitely rendered, indeed unforgettable.
