about

An ALA Notable Book: A contemporary tale of mythic proportions

Once upon a time, humans and animals lived together in perfect harmony. Each species was respected for its own particular strength, knowledge, and wisdom.

The Oxboy has a human mother and an ox father. But human society has now decided that this is unnatural and degrading. He and other children like him must keep their identities secret. But when the Oxboy is given a certificate covered with names—those of his ancestors—he knows that he must learn more about this half of his heritage: the ox half. The forbidden half. What follows is a striking journey to self-discovery.

Anne Mazer’s unforgettable tale reminds us of the dangers of prejudice and the importance of compassion.
