Now in paperback! The first in the series that introduces our plucky heroine May Bird, her brave and resourceful cat, Somber Kitty, and a host of silly and creepy underworld characters. Part Wizard of Oz, part Beetlejuice, this is a story that will capture any kid's spook-fancy. You'll want to go right on to the sequel, May Bird among the Stars.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most people aren't very comfortable in the woods, but the woods of Briery Swamp fit May Bird like a fuzzy mitten. There, she is safe from school and the taunts and teases of kids who don't understand her. Hidden in the trees, May is a warrior princess, and her cat, Somber Kitty, is her brave guardian.

Then May falls into the lake.

When she crawls out, May finds herself in a world that most certainly does not feel like a fuzzy mitten. in fact, it is a place few living people have ever seen. Here towns glow blue beneath zipping stars and the people — people? — walk through walls. Here the Book of the Dead holds the answers to everything in the universe. And here, if May is discovered, the horrifying evil Bo Cleevil will turn her into nothing.

May Bird must get out.

Fast.

Review:

"Following the tradition of works by Lewis Carroll and Frank Baum, this first book in a series features a child who enters the magical world of Ever After, where forces of good and evil are in combat." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"First episode of a projected three, this leaves May Bird in full flight through a vividly envisioned setting that's equal parts terror and tongue-in-cheek. Rare fun." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Review:

"Anderson sets the unsettling, nightmarish tone of her offbeat fantasy in the first paragraph, then compounds the horror chapter after scary chapter....The first of a trilogy, this book leaves loads of tantalizing, unanswered questions." Booklist

I absolutely thought this book was amazing. I really connected with every character and found myself holding my breath with May as she struggled in the Ever After. I have just finished reading the second book, and am anxiously awaiting news on a possible third.
