Bill Wallis's calm, elegant reading is perfect to tell the story of foster child Billy Bunch. A smiling infant when he was deserted at a police station, he soon turns into a sullen, unattractive child. Billy stutters in school but can sit silently still while watching a wild cygnet. When the cygnet sheds a gray feather, Billy picks it up--in that moment he discovers his love for the wilderness behind his foster home. Wallis's soothing voice tracks Billy's attachment to a fox, which sends him fleeing from his unhappy living situation. His gentle tones follow Billy's path until he finds a place where he belongs--with people who need him as much as he needs a loving home.
