Aug 24, Evelina AvalinahsBooks rated it really liked it Shelves: The Wildwood Chronicles, Book Two. Of the works we discussed above, Narnia and Labyrinth take place in their present days or not long before the s and 80s, respectivelywhile Trolls has a present frame story with flashbacks to the 70ss where most of the action occurs.

Meloy thinks these are character traits. Johns Bridgeis missing and unknown to the people of Wildwood’ s Portland.

Certainly, there are elements of this novel that have been presented in past YA fantasies — a cruel-minded Dowager Governess bent on ruling over the forest at whatever risk of bloodletting, whimsical animals who spar, cajole, and nurture, a flawed yet perfectly heroic rebel leader.

Curtis is captured and taken to Alexandra the leader of the coyoteswhile Prue rides a mail truck to South Wood.

Wildwood (Wildwood Chronicles, #1) by Colin Meloy

I was going to want more, and more, and more, and after every book, I’d have to wait for the next one. It’s a little love song to Portland, I guess, and the illustrations are charming but I couldn’t get through it.

Lots of modern-day references to things that ‘hipsters’ might like, but really it just came across as completely cringe-worthy. Brendan gives a speech to inspire his forces, christening the combined army the Wildwood Irregulars.

Scholastic has to reissue the Animorphs series every dronicas years or so to update the pop culture references. This is a fantastic book, written for middle-grades but clever enough for adults. It’s such a satisfying read – long, but easy to finish, great for both an adult or a child to read. Prue frantically follows, taking readers fully into an alternate world, where contingents of creatures both four-legged and human vascillate between diplomacy and all-out warfare.

It wasn’t super good but it was better than cronicae edit: Colin MeloyNaperville, Illinois: Johns bridge, which bridge I love in any guise. I sometimes wonder myself sildwood the book is recommended for children, but still, I think almost anyone can enjoy it. Although the whole animals in actual clothing and speaking like humans reminded me a lot of Bedknobs and Broomsticks for some unfathomable reason, I liked cdonicas some of the minor characters were given personalities and most of the cast in this book was pretty likable.

Needless to say, that’s both a long list and a mostly good one. I love me a book with graphics and illustrations.


That was the first time she had used it. What was their opinion of the book? Don’t you miss your family? Prue McKeel is a twelve-year-old from Portland, tasked with watching her baby brother while their parents spend the day at the craft fair. I first picked up this wikdwood because, I cannot lie, I love the Decemberists. View all 4 comments. Maybe the writing style was the problem, it was very heavy.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Prue and Curtis are not well-defined as characters; I wasn’t even able to put my finger on how old Prue was supposed to be until she came right out and said she was twelve at one lzs. Also the second book in the series was a big improvement on this one and made me like it a bit better.

The first negative review of Wildwood appeared following the release of the novel in the UK.

Later, by free choice, he becomes a full member of the bandits, and decides to stay behind with them wildwoid Wildwood, even as Prue returns home to St.

I like him well enough, but he’s not developed much.
