Wildwood: A Book by Colin Meloy (of The Decemberists) and Carson Ellis

If you’re a fan of The Decemberists, you’re already familiar with Colin Meloy’s storytelling and wordplay and Carson Ellis’ fantastic illustrations. Wouldn’t the husband and wife duo create an amazing children’s book? Well, they’ve done just that. And lo, it promises to be amazing.

See them speaking a bit about the book and the inspiration behind it below, and find out where to download a free preview of the first four chapters. I’ve started reading it tonight, and I am so excited about sharing this book with you!
