Wikenley is a lively little five year old from the village of Galette Chambon who lives with his mother, father, sister, and two brothers. His parents are farmers in the village who do not have a steady source of income. Wikenley did not get to start to school when he was three like most children because his parents couldn’t afford it. This year he was finally able start to school, but he might not be able to continue because the only reason he was able to go to school was because his older brother chose to sit out of school so he could go. Wikenley really wants to go to school, but he doesn’t want his brother to miss school any more. He loves to play with his friends, learn French, and when he grows up, he wants to become a mason and build houses.
