A twisty-turny, not-quite fairy tale that is sure to please, now in paperback!
Storm, Aurora, and Anything Eden live in a decaying mansion on the edge of the wilds with their erstwhile father and indolent mother. When an accident leaves them orphaned and at the mercy of the sinister Dr. DeWilde, these three courageous and eccentric sisters are forced to flee into the woods, where they encounter kidnappers, sweets-filled orphanages, mountains of ice, diamond mines, and some ravenously hungry wolves.
Taking inspiration from numerous fairy tales and weaving them into a wholly original story, Into the Woods is a whirlwind of a novel, full of imaginative happenings and dastardly deeds.
A wonderful mishmash of fairy tales, myths, and modern fantasy, INTO THE WOODS follows the dire fortunes of the three Eden sisters, Storm, Aurora, and Anything. After their parents are killed, the three find themselves running from the evil machinations of Dr. DeWilde, who wants a very special pipe of Storm's. Wild woods, a house made of candy, vicious wolves, and danger tumble through the girls' lives as they fight to discover the truth. With illustrations by Mini Grey, this is a both a 2007 Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Book and a School Library Journal Best Book.
