Wildwood is set in Portland, Oregon, and the woods which lie on it's border, the Impassable Wilderness. Nobody knows what lies inside the Impassable Wilderness, it's impassable, after all. Our leading lady Prue, is taking care of her baby brother in the park, when he is abducted by a huge flock of crows. Prue takes chase on her bicycle, following the flock of crows high above her in the sky. She follows them until they retreat with her baby brother, into the Impassable Wilderness. What follows is the adventures of Prue and her tagalong friend Curtis, through the Impassable Wilderness, known as Wildwood to it's inhabitants, tracking down her baby brother. Filled with wonderful creatures and exciting adventures, I really enjoyed this story! It's well written and paced, and the darling illustrations just add to the fun. I generally read pretty serious books, so it was nice to enjoy some escapism into this mysterious wooded wonderland.
Have you read Wildwood? I just started up a Goodreads account this week (I've been meaning to do that FOR-EVER). So I'll be keeping track of my reads, and hopefully finding some new books I didn't know about. I'd love to know what you thought about Wildwood, or if you have any recommendations I'll add them to my "to read" shelf!
