Reviews

WILDWOOD is 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
WILDWOOD is an irresistible, atmospheric adventure - richly imagined and richly rewarding.--Trenton Lee Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of The Mysterious Benedict Society
A satisfying blend of fantasy, adventure story, eco-fable and political satire with broad appeal; especially recommended for preteen boys.--Kirkus Reviews
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
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
Meloy has an immediately recognizable verbal style and creates a fully realized fantasy world.... Ellis's illustrations perfectly capture the original world and contribute to the feel of an instant timeless classic. Further adventures in Wildwood cannot come quickly enough.--School Library Journal (starred review)
