Kid View: Under Wildwood by Colin Meloy (Wildwood Chronicles, book #2)
“Slowly, words began to scrawl across the glass as if drawn there by a finger.
GIRL, it read.
Zita caught her breath in her throat.
I AM AWAKE.”
Under Wildwood is an exciting sequel to the Wildwood Chronicles. It’s a wonderful fantasy novel that keeps you on edge as the words create the world around you. Based in Portland and the magical Wood, the author combines a real city with a fantasy wood putting an interesting twist on the setting. There are many parts in the story that you’re thinking,”What’s going to happen next?” I think Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis do a great job at using both of their talents to create very clear but at the appropriate times, very fuzzy and mysterious plot. Suitable for readers age 10 and up because of the bit of violence and a few bad words, but overall a great book. My favorite part is when they first meet the moles under Wildwood and how the moles’ voices are so loud even though they are so small. I think it’s funny.😉 I haven’t read many books like this before but I will update the post if I find any related book suggestions.
