Annotation:
Fantasy, adventure, and the unexpected run through this middle grade offering from Colin Meloy, lead singer of the popular band the Decemberists. When 12-year-old Prue McKeel's little brother is stolen by a murder of crows and spirited away into the terrifying and unknown Impassable Wilderness, she is desperate to save him. Accompanied by irritating classmate Curtis Mehlberg, the pair discovers a wholly different series of societies involving animals that talk, responsive plants, endless bureaucracy, and other mysteries. Soon, it becomes apparent that sides must be chosen and a war will be waged. Based on Portland, Oregon's bucolic Forest Park, the story is accompanied by Meloy's wife and longtime Decemberist album artist Carson Ellis's pitch-perfect illustrations.

Praise

"Meloy's key contribution is a deftly deployed allegorical undercurrent hinting at the complexity of real--world political struggles...beautifully designed, with splendid illustrations by Caron Ellis." 12/05/2011
