A beautifully written fantasy series from the lead singer of The Decembrists, these books have the feel of the Narnia series, but with completely original characters and plot twists. Wildwood is the first book, followed by Under Wildwood and Wildwood Imperium. A great series for those students who have read C.S. Lewis or Phillip Pullman. Appropriate for grades 5 and up.
You're never too old for children's books, not because everyone can just appreciate them but because being a children's book doesn't automatically make it less valuable or valid as literature. This looks awesome and I'm gonna track it down once I'm home.
I love Colin Meloy. He's a true artist.
I never actually read these bc they're supposed to be for younger kids but comparing it to Pullman and Lewis makes me really want to give it a try! sometimes books for kids are better anyway
Great illustrations, too!
These looks like so much fun!! I wish I had read these when I was younger, but I think I can still get some enjoyment from them now :)
