A little boy who likes dirt goes to live in the woods with the Dirt Man until the Dirt Man decides the boy smells delicious.

Dirt Boy takes getting dirty to a whole new level! The boy is probably pretty relatable to children, because he does not like to take baths, but he would rather run away than take a bath. Many kids would probably enjoy the things that happen to him after he runs away. They would probably get a laugh when mushrooms start popping out of his feet and birds start living in his hair. They would also probably like how difficult it becomes to finally clean him after living in the woods for so long. This story is pretty wild and out there, but it was one that I absolutely loved!
