Reviews

A strong addition by a wonderfully talented author to diversify middle grade fantasy collections.--School Library Journal
As in life, the choices are never black and white as Park's realistically flawed characters struggle between looking out for the greater good or for themselves.--Publishers Weekly
While the adorable talking animals will win hearts, the complex ethical dilemmas Raffa faces about how to use (or not use) his talents lend a maturity to the narrative... True hearts and true friends prevail in Forest of Wonders, and readers will anxiously await the trilogy's next installment.--Shelf Awareness
A provocative moral tale about the relationship between humans and animals.... In the end, the ambiguity of the message is one of the novel's strengths. In a genre that often paints good and evil in black and white, Park has written a book with a lot of gray.--New York Times Book Review
With its engaging hero, talking animals, arcane magic, moral issues, and unresolved plot, this first of a proposed trilogy promises more exciting forest wonders.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
