Out of the Woods, by Rebecca Bond, is an amazing story. It is a true tale written about an event that took place during the childhood of the author’s grandfather. Living in the deep woods of Ontario, Canada, five-year-old Antonio grew up in his family’s hotel. It was surrounded by thick forest of trees. It was also surrounded by numerous wild animals, like foxes, bobcats, deer, bears, and even more. A lot of people lodged there, including lumberjacks (people who cut down trees), fisherman, and hunters. Then one day, because of a tragic event, something amazing happened. I have never heard of such an incredible thing! Open this good book to read about an unforgettable experience. I wish I could have been there!
