Imagine you wrote a story and that story came true.
This is exactly what happens to Blue Baker when he writes about a savage living alone in the woods near his home.
After his dad’s death, Blue finds comfort in dreaming of a wild kid who survives on a diet of berries and the occasional hapless passer-by. But when the savage pays a night-time visit to the local bully, boundaries become blurred and Blue begins to wonder where he ends and the savage begins.
The Savage is published by Walker Books; part novel, part graphic novel, this moving story features striking art from the award-winning Dave McKean.
