Looks as though he’s a part of the forest – dirty, long hair, some of it in ratty dreadlocks; his clothes are in tatters and stitched up with vines and leaves; he has lived in the forest for four years – not your typical suburban kid.
After losing his parents in a car crash at the age of four, Pete escapes to the forest where he meets a dragon who becomes his closest (and only) companion. When a nearby mill threatens to cut down the forest, Pete encounters his first humans since the death of his parents and is faced with choosing between his dragon friend and the prospect of a traditional childhood.
