The Call of the Swamp

The Call of the Swamp

by Davide Cali

Boris is a normal kid: he goes to school and rides his bike and climbs trees, just like all the other children. It doesn’t matter that he has scales and gills, or that his parents found him in a swamp when he was just a baby. But one day Boris catches the scent of his old home, and suddenly he’s not quite sure where he belongs. He journeys to the swamp, filled with questions, and eventually discovers the only answer he needs.

From the creators of The Queen of the Frogs comes an enchanting, nuanced story about adoption and family.
