Wildwood by Colin Meloy

Find in catalogThere is a lot in this book that is fun and creative. In many ways it reminded me of The Chronicles of Narnia, with its talking animals, evil witch, and child heroines. The author has a talent for description, but I had a hard time getting through this book. I struggled with the dialogue, and some of the humor would have been funny onscreen, but just didn’t work in literary form. I enjoy children’s literature and appreciate a lot of it as an adult, but I just couldn’t get into this one.
