Ever since Prue McKeel returned home from the Impassable Wilderness after rescuing her brother from the malevolent Dowager Governess, life has been pretty dull. School holds no interest for her, and her new science teacher keeps getting on her case about her dismal test scores and daydreaming in class. Her mind is constantly returning to the verdant groves and sky-tall trees of Wildwood, where her friend Curtis still remains as a bandit-in-training.

But all is not well in that world. 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. And, in what will be their greatest challenge yet, Prue and Curtis are thrown together again to save themselves and the lives of their friends, and to bring unity to a divided country. But in order to do that, they must go under Wildwood.In Under Wildwood, Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis reveal new dimensions of the epic fantasy-adventure series begun with the critically acclaimed, bestselling Wildwood -quoted from Goodreads

I LOVED Wildwood and I'm so excited the sequel will be out this fall!! I can not wait to dive back into the world. Isn't that cover cool looking? If you haven't already, I highly recommend picking up Wildwood. It was one of my top 10 favorite MG reads last year. 


  1. I haven't read Wildwood, sounds good. I'll have to check it out.

    1. Wildwood is fantastic MG read!! I highly recommend it :)

  2. I am super excited about this. I loved Wildwood as well. Why do we have to wait so long :)

    1. I don't know, but I can't wait that long. LOL

  3. I love the Wildwood covers so much. Do you think the series might be good for a 7-8 year old book group? Above average readers. We're doing a first-in-series set, and the handled City of Ember fine, though the Incorrigible Children series was a little over their head for independent reading. I just keep handing them series from when I was a girl, and I know they'd like to try some more modern series too.


I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
