May Bird and the Ever After (May Bird, Bk 1)
May Bird and the Ever After - May Bird, Bk 1 Author:Jodi Lynn Anderson, Leonid Gore (Illustrator) Most people aren't very comfortable in the woods, but the woods of Briery Swamp fit May Bird like a fuzzy mitten. There she is safe from school and the taunts and teases of kids who don't understand her. Hidden in the trees, May is a warrior princess, and her cat, Somber Kitty, is her brave guardian. — Then May falls into the lake. — When ... more »she crawls out, May finds herself in a world that most certainly does not feel like a fuzzy mitten. In fact, it is a place few living people have ever seen. Here towns glow blue beneath zipping stars and the people -- people? -- walk through walls. Here the Book of the Dead holds the answers to everything in the universe. And here, if May is discovered, the horrifyingly evil Bo Cleevil will turn her into nothing.
Ordered this for my daughter, however, after reading the back cover, I decided to investigate and I read it myself before reading it aloud to her, as this is still a little above her reading level. And I enjoyed this book, and look forward to the next one, for a 12 or 13 year old or older thats really into books they would enjoy the adventure in this book, and also those of us avid readers as adults that still have our imaginations!
