This book is the best book I have ever read, including My Father's Dragon, which is saying something. I couldn't stop reading this fantasy like non fiction book. I live in Portland, and so much of this is true, but with the animals talking makes it such a fun and funny and happy and sad really, good BOOK. I would recommend it to any age, no matter if they are 92 or 14, 44 or a toddler, as a bedtime story. It reminds me of so many different things, and everyone who reads it can connect in so many ways! Have fun reading the best book ever!

I was lucky to get an ARC of this book. I loved it. First of all, it's very well written. At the very beginning, when the little brother is abducted by the crows, I was a little weary, as it started off feeling like a Lemony Snicket wanna-be. Luckily the book hit its stride early and didn't falter the rest of the way. The basic concept of Wildwood, that there is a fantasy world in the real-life woods just outside of Portland, Oregon, is what made me want to read the book in the first place. Meloy does a really good job of transitioning between real world St. John's and fantasy-world Wildwood. The book is very atmospheric, and does a good job of making you feel like you are in those woods. Prue and Curtis are great main characters, The Dowager Governess is a fun villain. And the book is dark. Characters get shot or injured, and some die. The Governess's backstory is very dark, and the story of Prue's parents is very real and sad. Oh and the illustrations are nice and help with the atmosphere. I would recommend this to anyone 4th or 5th grade and older.

"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 , "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."
