Following on the heels of the The Song of Roland, Rabagliati returns to the childhood story of his famous semi-autobiographical character. It's 1970 and Paul joins the Scouts and heads to camp. Away from his parents and extended family he discovers self worth in a troop of enthusiastic boys. Things take a turn, however, when the troop gets mixed up in the FLQ crisis. This is a coming of age story which takes an historical approach to both the Baden Powell scouting movement and the October Crisis, but humanizes these incidents. It is original, sincere, captivating, and a bit retro.
