The Bodger's Apprentice
A long time ago, when a boy turned 10, it was time to choose an apprenticeship in a specific trade. But when James turns 10, he is at a loss. He does not like his father’s trade — smithing — nor does he like most trades. In fact, the boy does not like to work at all. His father eventually suggests he approach the Bodger for work. The Bodger? What is a Bodger? The boy follows a path into the woods to find out that the Bodger has much to teach him about work, about attention and about life.
