A spellbinding tale full of wonder, danger, and magic, the thrill of a secret world and modern city life. From the imagination of Colin Meloy comes Wildwood. Prue McKeel's has an ordinary life. But things soon start getting crazy.

Prue McKeel's life is ordinary. That is, 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. So begins an adventure that will take Prue and her friend Curtis deep into the Impassable Wilderness. 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.

'This book is like the wind, strange forest it describes. It is full of suspense and danger and frightening things with world has never seen, and once I stepped inside I never wanted to leave.' Lemony Snicket

'One part fairy tale, one part coming-of-age story, one part unrepentantly gorgeous work of art, this book is overflowing with gifts.' Jonathan Safran Foer

'A richly satisfying weave of reality and fantasy.' New York Times Book Review
