This is a heart-warming story about a child that lost his mother and unknowingly mistaken about who his father is. He has lived in an orphanage and has been in and out of several foster homes. He runs away with a small case of the only few possessions he has in a search to find the man that he believes to be his father. I would use this book to work on making inferences and discuss how sometimes if there are not enough clues or facts those inferences can turn out to be something completely different then what we thought.
