DianeG I am helping a friend find a children's chapter book she read when she was 10 or 11 so about 20 years ago. This is all the information she can remember:
"When I was in school, we read a book about a very young boy who was surviving in the wilderness by eating leaves. He had become malnourished and was found and taken to the hospital where they gave him food, but he started eating so quickly that they had to take the food away from him so that he wouldn't throw it up. The little boy didn't understand why they had taken the only food he had seen in a long time, and started crying. The little by was about 5 or 6."

Thank you!

DianeG All she can remember is there might have been a dog or something that helped the little boy.
