Where he's the only wooden boy. And where he's the cause of a tragic accident.Suddenly, Barkbelly's only choice is to flee for his life--to run. As he tries to escape his haunting past, he faces extraordinary adventures and dangers. Every wooden step leads Barkbelly toward the dark and startling truth about where he comes from and the burning question of where he really belongs.
