From the Publisher
Ever since Prue McKeel returned home from the Impassable
Wilderness, life has been pretty dull. Her mind is constantly
returning to the verdant groves and sky-tall trees of Wildwood,
where her friend Curtis still remains as a bandit-in-training. But
all is not well in that world. A hard winter has come and discord
reigns in the wake of the so-called Bicycle Coup. Dark assassins
with mysterious motives conspire to settle the scores of an unknown
client. A titan of industry employs inmates from his orphanage to
work in his machine shop.

Praise for Under Wildwood:"Droll and ornate, elegiac and romantic-the sequel to Wildwood (2011) brings readers deeper into and under the pine-scented, magical world tantalizingly close to Portland, Ore...The incomparable Ellis more than rises to the challenge-her sly, wistful, abundant illustrations provide an emotional through line."
