Product Description
 
The Benevento children are excitedly preparing for the annual Boar Hunt, where the prize of the Golden Tusk is given to the ten-year old who catches the boar. No girl has ever competed, but Rosa is determined to take part -and win! She refuses to stay home and help take care of the new baby and cook and clean. She will just have to run away.

Life was very different in Benevento of the 1800s, and John Marciano's clever story and Sophie Blackall's charming illustrations bring the town, its people, and its past to vivid life.The Benevento children are excitedly preparing for the annual Boar Hunt, where the prize of the Golden Tusk is given to the ten-year old who catches the boar.
