Under Wildwood by Colin Meloy
In Under Wildwood , Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis reveal new dimensions of the epic fantasy-adventure series begun with the bestselling Wildwood. Ever since Prue McKeel rescued her brother from the malevolent Dowager Governess and returned home from the Impassable Wilderness, life has been pretty dull. Prue's mind is constantly returning to the verdant groves and sky-tall trees of Wildwood, where her friend Curtis remains as a bandit-in-training. But all is not well in that world. A hard winter has come and discord reigns. Dark assassins with mysterious motives conspire to settle the scores of an unknown client. A titan of industry employs inmates from his orphanage to work in his machine shop, all the while obsessing over the exploitation of the Impassable Wilderness. Under a growing threat, Prue is drawn back into Wildwood, where she and Curtis will face their greatest challenge yet: to save themselves and the lives of their friends, and to bring unity to a divided country. In order to do that, they must go under Wildwood.

Praise for WILDWOOD:
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 -- Lemony Snicket, Author Of A Series Of Unfortunate Events
A beautiful object and a beautiful read. One half fairy tale, one half coming-of-age story, one half unrepentantly gorgeous work of art, this book is overflowing with gifts -- Jonathan Safran Foer
A haunting and beautiful adventure, as well as a rare instance of an almost supernaturally seamless collaboration between writer and illustrator. A brilliant book, about the magic that fringes reality, about the intensity of childhood, about friendship, and the wonders of the wilderness. You are holding a very precious thing -- Matt Haig, Author Of Shadow Forest
This vivid picaresque fantasy ... with stylish line drawings and colour plates ... is an unpretentiously written tale with a strong start, an engaging denouement and a green theme -- Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times Culture Magazine
