9780062047069: Wildwood CD (Wildwood Chronicles)

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. Now in paperback!

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.

Product Description:

Prue McKeel is keeping out of trouble. Or trying to. Then her baby brother is abducted by crows and hauled off to the woods beyond the city. It is up to Prue to bring him back. On her mission she is plunged into the world of Wildwood and there she meets more trouble - and magic - than she ever thought possible.

Review:

This book is like the wild, strange forest it describes. It is full of suspense and danger and frightening things the world has never seen, and once I stepped inside I never wanted to leave (LEMONY SNICKET, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events)

A beautiful object and a beautiful read. One half fairy tale, one half coming-of-age story, one half unrepentantly gorgeous work of art, this book is overflowing with gifts (JONATHAN SAFRAN FOER)

An irresistible, atmospheric adventure - richly imagined and richly rewarding (TRENTON LEE STEWART, author of The Mysterious Benedict Society series)

Dark and whimsical, with a true and uncanny sense of otherworldliness, WILDWOOD is the heir to a great tradition of stories of wild childhood adventure. It snatched me up and carried me off into a world I didn't want to leave (MICHAEL CHABON)

A haunting and beautiful adventure, as well as a rare instance of an almost supernaturally seamless collaboration between writer and illustrator. A brilliant book, about the magic that fringes reality, about the intensity of childhood, about friendship, and the wonders of the wilderness. You are holding a very precious thing. (MATT HAIG, author of SHADOW FOREST)

This vivid picaresque fantasy . . . with stylish line drawings and colour plates . . . is an unpretentiously written tale with a strong start, an engaging denouement and a green theme (Nicolette Jones Sunday Times Culture Magazine)

A book children and adults alike will treasure ( Digital Artist)

Book Description Balzer Bray/Harperteen, United States, 2011. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Carson Ellis (illustrator). Unabridged. 152 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New. Prue McKeel s life is ordinary. At least until her brother is abducted by a murder of crows and taken to the Impassable Wilderness, a dense, tangled forest on the edge of Portland. No one s ever gone in - or at least returned to tell of it. So begins an adventure that will take Prue and her friend, Curtis, deep into the Impassable Wilderness. There they 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 is a spellbinding tale full of wonder, danger, and magic that juxtaposes the thrill of a secret world and modern city life. Original and fresh yet steeped in classic fantasy, this is a novel could have only come from the imagination of Colin Meloy, celebrated for his inventive and fantastic storytelling as the lead singer of the Decemberists. Wildwood is truly a new classic for the twenty-first century. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780062047069
