Synopsis

Under Wildwood The Wildwood Chronicles, Book II by Colin Meloy

Ever since Prue McKeel rescued her brother from the wicked Dowager Governess and returned home from the Impassable Wilderness, life has been pretty dull. But when dark assassins, a dangerous businessman and a freezing winter all threaten the residents of Wildwood, Prue is drawn back in to their world. Together, she and her friend Curtis will face their greatest challenge yet: to save themselves and the lives of their friends, and to bring unity to a divided country.

Reviews

Praise for the Wildwood Chronicles trilogy:

'Once I stepped inside I never wanted to leave -- LEMONY SNICKET A richly satisfying weave of reality and fantasy * * New York Times * * A haunting and beautiful adventure. Brilliant -- MATT HAIG Irresistible -- TRENTON LEE STEWART Droll and ornate, elegiac and romantic - the sequel to Wildwood brings readers deeper into and under the pine-scented, magical world . . . The incomparable Ellis more than rises to the challenge - her sly, wistful, abundant illustrations provide an emotional through line * * Kirkus Review * *


About the Author

Colin Meloy

Colin Meloy once wrote Ray Bradbury a letter, informing him that he 'considered himself an author too'. He was ten. Since then, Colin has gone on to be the singer and songwriter for the band The Decemberists, where he channels all of his weird ideas into weird songs. This is his first time channelling those ideas into a novel.

As a child, Carson Ellis loved exploring the woods, drawing and nursing wounded animals back to health. As an adult, little has changed - except she is now the acclaimed illustrator of several books for children, including Lemony Snicket's The Composer is Dead, Dillweed's Revenge by Florence Parry Heide, and The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart.

Colin and Carson live with their son, Hank, in Portland, Oregon, quite near the Impassable Wilderness.
