The Eye of the Wolf and the "Readers Bill of Rights"

By: Daniel Pennac
Location: FIC PEN
Genre: Fairy Tale x Foreign Lit.

First of all the author of this book wrote the "Readers Bill of Rights" below.  I love them.
This book is a fable, it is  all about respect, understanding, selflessness and friendship. It is the story of two, both hurt, both wanting to regain somethings that have been lost, and belief that maybe they can be found. It is a short book only 115 pages long, but it packs a punch. And it goes where I love too...
Reminiscent of THE LITTLE PRINCE, Daniel Pennac’s fable of a boy and a wolf who dare to meet each other’s gaze unfolds with humor, poignancy, and philosophical resonance.

They were born worlds apart, the wolf from the Far North and the boy from Yellow Africa. Now all that separates them is a cage at the zoo. The wolf has lost much on his journey, including an eye and his beloved pack. But when he finally consents to trust the strange, still little boy who has been watching him ― to meet his eye ― their lives intersect with unforgettable results.

Master storyteller Daniel Pennac weaves the events of two lives into a mythic tapestry that ultimately and magnificently reveals the fellowship of all creatures.
