For fans of The Chronicles of Narnia comes the first
book in the Wildwood Chronicles, the New York Times
bestselling fantasy adventure series by Colin Meloy, lead singer of
the Decemberists, and Carson Ellis, acclaimed illustrator of
The Mysterious Benedict Society.
In Wildwood, Prue and her friend Curtis uncover a
secret world in the midst of violent upheaval-a world full of
warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the
darkest intentions. And what begins as a rescue mission becomes
something much greater as the two friends find themselves entwined
in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness
the locals call Wildwood.
Wildwood captivates readers with the wonder and thrill
of a secret world within the landscape of a modern city. It feels
at once firmly steeped in the classics of children's literature and
completely fresh at the same time. The story is told from multiple
points of view, and the book features more than eighty
illustrations, including six full-color plates, making this an
absolutely gorgeous object.
