This full-color, illustrated companion novel to The Cats of Tanglewood Forest includes "beautiful bookmaking, lovely storytelling, and wondrous illustrations....Readers will be enchanted" ( Kirkus Reviews , starred review). This captivating adventure from two masters of modern fantasy is a story of magic, family, and the power in believing in both.

Sarah Jane has always wanted to meet a fairy, but she has no idea that the tiny wounded man she discovers in the Tanglewood Forest is about to ensnare her in a longtime war between rival magical clans. When her six sisters are kidnapped and split up by the opposing sides, she'll need the help of several friends--from the reclusive Aunt Lillian to the mysterious Apple Tree Man--to bring them home. But if they don't untangle themselves from the feud quickly, they could all be trapped in the fairy world forever. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly noted "the lyrical narrative blends a contemporary setting with a fairy tale that might have been plucked from a distinctly different time and place."

My two favorite Charles together again, de Lint and Vess. This is a young person's fairytale adventure but really does fantasy have an age level? I enjoy this story immensely. Any lover of the spirits of the land will enjoy this and many of de Lints "urban fantasies". This could be considered a prequel to "Medicine Road".

In this sequel to the Cats of Tanglewood Forest, Sarah Jane has no idea that the wounded man she discovers in the forest is about to ensnare her in a longtime war between rival magical clans. When her six sisters are kidnapped she needs help. Especially because her youngest sisters are – well – basically brats. This is fantasy at its best, filled with mystery and magic, and a test, a quest, and the best of heroines.
