The Man, the Boy, and the Donkey Aesop A man and his son were once going with their donkey to market. As they were walking along by his side a countryman passed them and said, "You fools, what is a donkey for but to ride upon?" So the man put the boy on the donkey, and they went on their way. The man and boy are, in many ways, navigators of this new world and the sextant, as a navigational tool that is also beautiful in form, offers the man hope and a rekindling of heart. The theme of shells and skeletons is exceptionally strong in this section.

Marcus is a year-old, introverted and eccentric boy with a depressed and suicidal mother, Fiona (Toni Collette). At the picnic, Marcus accidentally kills a duck with a stale loaf of bread while trying to feed it, and when a park keeper questions him about it, Will tries to pass it off (the duck) as already dead whilst trying to sink the body. But The Boy constantly thinks of others – the people on the road less fortunate than him, the people whose houses they stay in, and even the people on the road who want to harm him. His compassion inspires The Man to this love-fest late in the book: "You have my whole heart.
