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!
