Going into the woods the first time was a mistake. A mistake for which Martin paid dearly. Going into the woods the second time was an accident. Separated from his best friend, Martin ventures deeper into forbidden territory to find help before Elodie before she meets the same fate he did.
Equal parts ominous and uplifting, Where the Woods Grow Wild weaves a world of possibilities before your eyes. Creatures and curiosities are always just beyond the leaves, characters capable of as much evil as good keep you on the edge of your seat, and the outcome seems slightly uncertain. It’s the kind of story that sticks with you even after you’ve reached The End.
I’d highly recommend Where the Woods Grow Wild to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy forest, fans of Cornelia Funke’s fantasy titles, and the whimsical creatures from the Labyrinth or Star Wars.
