A book that highlights cooperation and the human capacity for mutual aid.
When small group of chlidren find themselves deep in the woods one summer, they are forced to cooperate and learn to live together without help from adults. They will have to pitch in toward common goals, share their knowledge, and become better at communicating with each other, in order for their little community to survive as best it can in the heart of the forest. Their lives will be punctuated by discoveries and inventions, joy and pain, moments of doubt but also closness, argument and reconciliations, games and fireside tales. A graphic novel as funny as it is refreshing, with characters with whom readers can easily identify.
