Wildwood by Colin Meloy
Prue is out one day with her baby brother. It seems like the most ordinary day until crows swoop down and carry her brother away into the Impassable Wilderness. She, along with a curious neighbor, head into the forest to try and retrieve her brother. What they find in the forest is beyond their imagination.
Wildwood has the most whimsical cover and it also delightful illustrations throughout, and both the writing and story delight as well.
It's also a thick book at 500+ pages, but halfway through, I knew that I would need the next book at the ready, so I reserved it at the library. Smart thinking! I finished Wildwood, and immediately started reading Under Wildwood.
