Product description

Review

*"A sure winner for any reader with a yen to become permanently terrified. Brilliant." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

"Emily Carroll's Through the Woods mesmerizes and inspires; a Victorian gothic playground haunted by Mary Shelley & Edward Gorey, awash in the dream-like haze of Odilon Redon, and composed with the poetic elegance of Ukiyo-e. I loved it." (Craig Thompson, three-time Eisner Award-winning author of BLANKETS)

"Through the Woods is a triumph, it's gorgeous, soft and bright, and it is dark, earthy and spin-chilling. [Emily Carroll] should be recognized as one of the best graphic storytellers out there." (Kate Beaton, author of HARK! A VAGRANT)

"Through the Woods will dazzle you, seduce you, amaze you, delight and frighten and enchant you. What a talent. What a voice." (Mark Siegel, author of SAILOR TWAIN, OR THE MERMAID IN THE HUDSON)

"This book is full of gorgeous, terrifying tales of mysterious wooded misadventures that creep right into your brain and seduce you." (Lucy Knisley, author of RELISH: MY LIFE IN THE KITCHEN)

"Stunning, magical. Hauntingly gothic...[Through the Woods] made me feel like a child again, reading grim fairy tales." (Jane Harris, author of THE OBSERVATIONS)

"Beautiful, beguiling, and thrillingly eerie." (Michael Faber, author of THE CRIMSON PETAL AND THE WHITE)

"Through the Woods is an uncanny wonder. This haunting collection of visual stories, part Stephen King and part Edgar Allen Poe, is a special kind of quiet horror." (John Hendrix, winner of the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles Best of Show Award.)

*"It is [Carroll’s] eerie illustrations—popping with bold color on black, glossy pages—that masterfully build terrifying tension and a keep-the-lights-on atmosphere." (Booklist, starred review)

*“Instead of the gratifying defeat of evil, the gothic stories often leave off unsettlingly with a twist of the knife, just at the moment some fresh horror beckons.”—Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
