From Colin Meloy, lead singer of the Decemberists, and Carson Ellis, acclaimed illustrator ofThe Mysterious Benedict Society, comes the stunning third book in theNew York Timesbestselling fantasy-adventure series the Wildwood Chronicles.

A young girl's midnight séance awakens a long-slumbering malevolent spirit.... A band of runaway orphans allies with an underground collective of saboteurs and plans a daring rescue of their friends, imprisoned in the belly of an industrial wasteland.... Two old friends draw closer to their goal of bringing together a pair of exiled toy makers in order to reanimate a mechanical boy prince.... As the fate of Wildwood hangs in the balance.

The Wildwood Chronicles is a mesmerizing and epic tale, at once firmly steeped in the classics of children's literature and completely fresh at the same time. In this book, Colin Meloy continues to expand and enrich the magical world and cast of characters he created inWildwood, while Carson Ellis once again brings that world to life with her gorgeous artwork, including six full-color plates.

About the Author

Colin Meloy once wrote Ray Bradbury a letter, informing him that he "considered himself an author too." He was ten. Since then, Colin has gone on to be the singer and songwriter for the band the Decemberists, where he channels all of his weird ideas into weird songs. With the Wildwood Chronicles, he is now channeling those ideas into novels.

As a kid, Carson Ellis loved exploring the woods, drawing, and nursing wounded animals back to health. As an adult, little has changed—except she is now the acclaimed illustrator of several books for children, including Lemony Snicket'sThe Composer Is Dead,Dillweed's Revengeby Florence Parry Heide, andThe Mysterious Benedict Societyby Trenton Lee Stewart.

Colin and Carson live with their sons, Hank and Milo, in Oregon.

Editorial Reviews

“Meloy gives his antic imagination full rein to produce work that...is brilliantly sui generis.”
