Prue McKeel's life is ordinary. At least until her brother is abducted by a murder of crows and taken to the Impassable Wilderness, a dense, tangled forest on the edge of Portland. No one's ever gone in - or at least returned to tell of it. So begins an adventure that will take Prue and her friend, Curtis, deep into the Impassable Wilderness. There they uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval-a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions. And what begins as a rescue mission becomes something much greater, as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness the locals call Wildwood. Wildwood is a spellbinding tale full of wonder, danger, and magic that juxtaposes the thrill of a secret world and modern city life. Original and fresh yet steeped in classic fantasy, this is a novel could have only come from the imagination of Colin Meloy, celebrated for his inventive and fantastic storytelling as the lead singer of the Decemberists. Wildwood is truly a new classic for the twenty-first century.

I do not think this title is suitable for readers ages 3 to 5! There is some quite complicating text and a VERY slow read! For people who want a very straightforward book that you can read within a week for report, I would most definitely NOT recommend this title. This is something that you would want to buy (check out) in late fall so that you can snuggle up with some hot cocoa and read for hours on end!

Narrator sucks. Her voice and delivery are more suited to tea parties and lost puppies than a fantasy adventure with conflict and combat. Skip the audio and go straight to the book.
