The Wild Boy has been wild all his life in the forests. The Wild Boy was only like a human by walking like a regular person, but still acted like a animal. When he acted like an animal, he dug from the dirt and roots to get food. Then the Wild Boy would walk around naked. People from the Village of Lacaune saw him and tried to rescue him, because they wanted to know and get full knowledge of how he became wild. Whenever people from the village caught him, the wild boy ended up escaping again. Usually when people captured him, they put the Wild Boy on display for everyone to see. The Wild Boy gets put into an orphanage and Dr. Itard takes him. Dr.Itard tries to see if he had any family background and helped him talk and ask for things he wanted. Dr.Itard tried his best to teach him how to communicate, but the Wild Boy was not close to understanding on how to communicate. As the Wild Boy then grew up to be a full adult, he leaves back into the wild, and continues his life in the wild. They all knew he would try and come back to visit, and he lived in freedom his whole life.

In the book Wild Boy by Mary Losure, I thought the book had a great meaning to it. In my opinion, I liked the book a little bit, it wasn’t the best book I read, but the book had a terrific beginning to where you wanted to find out how he became wild. I had a great time enjoying the book Wild Boy.
