Book Giveaway: Under Wildwood. Ends Mar 31st

Under Wildwood


UNDER WILDWOOD written by Colin Meloy with illustrations by Carson Ellis

Book two of the Wildwood Chronicles

Ever since Prue McKeel returned home from the Impassable Wilderness after rescuing her brother from the malevolent Dowager Governess, life has been pretty dull. School holds no interest for her, and her new science teacher keeps getting on her case about her dismal test scores and daydreaming in class. Her mind is constantly returning to the verdant groves and sky-tall trees of Wildwood, where her friend Curtis still remains as a bandit-in-training.

But all is not well in that world. Dark assassins with mysterious motives conspire to settle the scores of an unknown client. A titan of industry employs inmates from his orphanage to work in his machine shop, all the while obsessing over the exploitation of the Impassable Wilderness. And, in what will be their greatest challenge yet, Prue and Curtis are thrown together again to save themselves and the lives of their friends, and to bring unity to a divided country. But in order to do that, they must go under Wildwood.

  1. I love the idea of exploring the difficulty encountered when returning to “real life” after an adventure.

  3. Exciting! This adventure sounds original and perfect for a classroom of 6th graders, which I teach. I will share this title with them whether I win the copy or not. I like the name of main character, Prue. It is unique and immediately piques the reader’s interest. Wildwood evokes images of Wonderland and Oz! Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. Wildwood has been on my TBR for sometime….something about the jacket cover(s) tugs at me. It would be great to read both books back to back.

  11. I haven’t read this series yet, but it sounds like a fantasy series with some depth to it, something my great readers are always looking for.

  12. As soon as I saw the cover I recognized it. Colin Meloy is one of my favorite musicians. I’m a huge fan of his solo work as well as with The Decemberists. This looks like a book I would put away until my daughter was a bit older and then we would read it together at bedtime. The illustrations look beautiful and my daughter would like the story about bandits and the woods. She likes stories full of adventure.
