When Charlie’s longed-for brother is born with a serious heart condition, Charlie’s world is turned upside down. Upset and afraid, Charlie flees the hospital and makes for the ancient forest on the edge of town. There Charlie finds a boy floating face-down in the stream, dressed in deerskins, injured, but alive. But when Charlie sets off back to the hospital to fetch help, it seems the forest has changed. It’s become a place as strange and wild as the boy dressed in deerskins. Now it’s something vast and strange. Something ancient. Something WILD.
And Charlie is a long, long way from home. Charlie has unwittingly fled into the Stone Age, with no way to help the boy or return to the present day. Or is there…?
Fans of Piers Torday and Sophie Anderson will delight in this thrilling, wise and heartfelt adventure as Charlie and the Stone Age boy set out together to find what they have lost – their courage, their hope, the family and their way home.
