Waiting On Wednesday: Wildwood

Waiting on Wednesday idea from Jill at Breaking the Spine.


Wildwood by Colin Meloy

* Published by: Balzer + Bray (US)
* Format: Hardcover (US)
* Release Date: August 30th, 2011 (US)
* On Amazon: here

Info from Goodreads:

The first book in the epic middle-grade fantasy series full of magic, wonder, and danger—nothing less than an American Narnia—from Colin Meloy, lead singer of the highly celebrated band the Decemberists, and Carson Ellis, the acclaimed illustrator of the New York Times bestselling The Mysterious Benedict Society.

I don't know much about this book other than that it's a fantasy, it's middle grade and it's written by the lead singer of The Decemberists. (How cool is that?!) What actually caught my eye - besides the cover - is how I've read a few people calling it the 'American Narnia'. I love Narnia (I'd quite like to live there), I like middle grade books (especially fantasy) and The Decemberists are rather good at that music thing they do. Let's hope his writing rocks too!

That cover is amazing!!! I may have to post about it on my cover section, Frame that Cover!

I'm definitely intrigued after hearing its the 'American Narnia!' (Have you read all the Narnia books? No one ever seems to and I can never talk about how much I hated the ending!)

Thanks for posting about this one - not too many blogs mention younger books :)

I really like the cover... and being called the "American Narnia" is pretty cool. I'll have to check it out!

I'm starting to realise that reading this blog could be bad for my bank balance :) Also, I managed to convince my little sister that I had Narnia in the back of my wardrobe but she couldn't get there because she didn't believe hard enough! :D
