Boris doesn't look like his parents. He knows the story. They could not have children so when they found Boris on the edge of the swamp, they fell in love and took him home. It didn't matter to them that he had gills and really big eyes and wasn't like the other kids. He was their son and they loved him. But Boris is beginning to wonder if there is another family out there that he looks like. He is happy but he can't stop thinking about the possibility that he belongs in the swamp. He decided to run away and go back. What do you think he'll find?
