For as long as ten-year-old Moon can remember, he has lived out in the forest in a shelter with his father. They keep to themselves, their only contact with other human beings an occasional trip to the nearest general store. When Moon's father dies, Moon follows his father's last instructions: to travel to Alaska to find others like themselves. But Moon is soon caught and entangled in a world he doesn't know or understand; he's become property of the government he has been avoiding all his life. As the spirited and resourceful Moon encounters constables, jails, institutions, lawyers, true friends, and true enemies, he adapts his wilderness survival skills and learns to survive in the outside world, and even, perhaps, make his home there. This title has Common Core connections.

Alabama Moon is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

About the Author:

Albert Watkins Key, Jr., publishing under the name Watt Key, is an award-winning southern fiction author. He grew up and currently lives in southern Alabama with his wife and family. Watt spent much of his childhood hunting and fishing the forests of Alabama, which inspired his debut novel, Alabama Moon, published to national acclaim in 2006. Alabama Moon won the 2007 E.B. White Read-Aloud Award and has been translated in seven languages.

Alabama Moon is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

From AudioFile:

Nick Landrum portrays 10-year-old Moon, who's been raised by a Vietnam vet survivalist father who trusts no one. Landrum's tones are convincing whether he's using the accent of rural Alabama locals or showing Moon's mixed feelings of conviction and confusion as he faces the world alone. After his father dies of a broken leg, rather than seeing a doctor, Moon follows directions and buries him in the woods. He's made his own clothes, killed his own food, but how is he supposed to get himself to homesteaders in Alaska as he promised his father? Self-sufficiency's one thing, but as he tastes his first sweet roll and rides in a car, Moon wonders if he should he believe everything his father told him.
