May Bird and the Ever After: Book One

by

May Bird and the Ever After: Book One Cover

 

Staff Pick

Deep in the woods of Briery Swamp, May Ellen Bird and her hairless Rex, Somber Kitty, stumble into the Ever After, where the motto is "Make the Most of Your Afterlife," and spirits, ghosts, and ghouls are afraid of the Living. Soon May Bird finds that getting back home to the other side means defeating the nefarious dictator of the underworld, Bo Cleevil. Like all good adventures, May Bird and the Ever After is packed with chills, thrills, and unlikely friends. What makes this story unique is Jodi Lynn Anderson's attention to detail, which brings the Ever After to life (so to speak) in all its musty, creepy, decaying glory.

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.
