Recently I heard Stephen Colbert describe "Young Adult Novels" as books that people actually finish. I think I understand that. As a reader, you will be excited to plow through all three of the novels in this series written by the erudite lead singer of The Decemberists. Don't let the fact that these books could be characterized as children's literature dissuade you from enjoying some of the most entertaining adventure tales this side of Lord of the Rings & Harry Potter. You're going to love your sojourn in Wildwood.

Wildwood is an astoundingly magical book. It takes you to a real place but takes a turn that puts Forest Park in whole new light. Admist a world of coyote soldiers, talking eagles and political conspiracies an inspirational young girl follows her kidnapped brother into the heart of Wildwood and takes you on an adventure that you will never forget. It affects your heart and the part of every person that is truly connected to nature.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Meloy, the lead singer of the band the Decemberists, delves into middle-grade fiction with a story that pairs classic adventure novel tropes with cool, disaffected prose. The book opens as 12-year-old Prue McKeel loses her baby brother to a murder of crows, and sets off to rescue him from the Impassable Wilderness, a strange country alongside Portland, Ore., (where the actual Forest Park lies). Her classmate Curtis tags along, and the two are soon separated. Prue takes refuge with the postmaster in his delivery van, while Curtis is captured, then suddenly made an officer in an army of talking coyotes led by the beautiful and intimidating Dowager Governess. It becomes apparent that Prue and Curtis have landed on opposite sides in a war — and neither side may be right. Without a good side to cheer for (disappointments and betrayals abound), the story lacks a strong emotional center, and its preoccupations with bureaucracy, protocol, and gray-shaded moral dilemmas, coupled with the book's length, make this slow going. Ellis's spot art, not all seen by PW, is characteristically crisp and formal, further lending the story a detached quality. Ages 8 — 12. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
"Review" by , "Wildwood is a beautiful object and a beautiful read. One half fairy tale, one half coming of age story, one half unrepentantly gorgeous work of art, this book is overflowing with gifts."
"Review" by , "Dark and whimsical, with a true and uncanny sense of otherworldliness, Wildwood is the heir to a great tradition of stories of wild childhood adventure. It snatched me up and carried me off into a world I didn't want to leave."
"Review" by , "A satisfying blend of fantasy, adventure story, eco-fable and political satire with broad appeal; especially recommended for preteen boys."
"Review" by , "This book is like the wild, strange forest it describes. It is full of suspense and danger and frightening things the world has never seen, and once I stepped inside I never wanted to leave."
"Review" by , "Wildwood is an irresistible, atmospheric adventure — richly imagined and richly rewarding."
"Review" by , "Meloy has an immediately recognizable verbal style and creates a fully realized fantasy world....Ellis's illustrations perfectly capture the original world and contribute to the feel of an instant timeless classic. Further adventures in Wildwood cannot come quickly enough."
