Staff Pick

Once more, we return with Prue and Curtis to the weirdly wonderful world of Wildwood. Between these pages awaits lost automaton princes, beret-wearing vegetarian revolutionaries, epic prophecy, and a struggle that threatens the very existence of the Impassable Wilderness and worlds beyond.
Recommended by The Dot, Powell's Books on Hawthorne

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Colin Meloy, lead singer of the Decemberists, and Carson Ellis, acclaimed illustrator of The Mysterious Benedict Society, comes the stunning third book in the New York Times bestselling fantasy-adventure series the Wildwood Chronicles.

A young girl's midnight séance awakens a long-slumbering malevolent spirit.... A band of runaway orphans allies with an underground collective of saboteurs and plans a daring rescue of their friends, imprisoned in the belly of an industrial wasteland.... Two old friends draw closer to their goal of bringing together a pair of exiled toy makers in order to reanimate a mechanical boy prince.... As the fate of Wildwood hangs in the balance.

The Wildwood Chronicles is a mesmerizing and epic tale, at once firmly steeped in the classics of children's literature and completely fresh at the same time. In this book, Colin Meloy continues to expand and enrich the magical world and cast of characters he created in Wildwood, while Carson Ellis once again brings that world to life with her gorgeous artwork, including six full-color plates.

Review:

“Meloy gives his antic imagination full rein to produce work that, if occasionally uneven, is brilliantly sui generis.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Synopsis:

A young girl's midnight séance awakens a long-slumbering malevolent spirit . . .

A band of runaway orphans allies with an underground collective of saboteurs and plans a daring rescue of their friends, imprisoned in the belly of an industrial wasteland . . .

Two old friends draw closer to their goal of bringing together a pair of exiled toy makers in order to reanimate a mechanical boy prince . . .

As the fate of Wildwood hangs in the balance.

The third book in the Wildwood Chronicles is a rich, moving, and dazzling story, by turns funny and profound. Both Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis are at the height of their gifts with Wildwood Imperium.

About the Author

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. With the Wildwood Chronicles, he is now channeling those ideas into novels.

As a kid, 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 sons, Hank and Milo, in Oregon.

Valeri, October 27, 2013 (view all comments by Valeri)
Of Wildwood I said "Feisty, intelligent Prue is searching for her baby brother who has been kidnapped by crows. Curse those evil crows! A friend of hers, Curtis, invites himself along and together they enter the supposedly impassable wilderness of Wildwood where they meet a slew of crazy characters. It's a great story, a lot of fun, AND has illustrations!" and of Under Wildwood I said " What an adventure -- and a well characterized one at that! -- lots of folk to attach to and lots to dislike. " I rated both of them 4 stars and am eagerly anticipating book #3, Wildwood Imperium!
These are wonderful chapter books for children and lovers of children's books.
