Wildwood by Colin Meloy

Another one from last year that Paul and I both read. This is a great big enjoyable book, that is very reminscent of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe-particularly with regard to the mean witch lady who practically offers turkish delight.

It turns out that outside of Portland there are the wilds-an area that no mortal goes into (except regular people have no clue that there is anything other than regular-mortal people.) But when the girl (Sophie??)’s baby brother gets carried off by crows she follows them and finds herself in the woods, dealing with talking animals, coyote soldiers, witch queens, caught up in feuding factions, and that her family is part of a magical deal.

This was just wonderful.
