While reading the beginning of the "Lost In The Barrens" and getting to know major characters of the story, I have pointed out characteristics for each one of them. The relationship between two boys, Jamie and Awasin, was very much like it would be between a puppy and a mother dog. Jamie wanted to be in adventures ever since he left Toronto.

The great novel and an excellent movie "Lord of the Flies" have similar conflicts along the story. Grade four class was trapped on the island and without adul
