Wildwood
Colin Meloy

On a perfectly normal Sunday in Portland, Oregon 12-year-old Prue watches in horror as a murder of crows flies off with her baby brother into the “Impassable Wilderness” where no humans ever go. Prue and a classmate follow, bent on finding Prue’s brother before her parents find out. In the process they discover a secret world in upheaval over freedom, with evils as wicked and characters as colorful as those in C. S. Lewis’ Narnia.  Wildwood is the first in a series, perfect for 3rd – 8th grade readers.
