A Boy Among Dogs
This tale of a boy raised by dogs follows the life of Romochka who at about six years of age leaves his home and follows a nursing mother dog back to her home. He is slowly accepted into the pack and lives a happy life for some time. However, after a few years he notices the mother dog "Mamochka" acting strangely towards him. She leaves the den only to return with a new human baby "puppy"!

The story is both charming and horrifying. Hornung delves into what make us "human" and winds up questioning, are we still not animals. I found the story riveting and although the ending was a bit abrupt, it is well worth the read.
