The Cats of Tanglewood Forest (Excerpt)


We’ve got an excerpt Charles de Lint’s The Cats of Tanglewood Forest, illustrated by Charles Vess! Take a look at this gorgeous book, out on March 5 from Little, Brown Books For Young Readers:

The magic is all around you, if only you open your eyes….

Lillian Kindred spends her days exploring the Tanglewood Forest, a magical, rolling wilderness that she imagines to be full of fairies. The trouble is, Lillian has never seen a wisp of magic in her hills—until the day the cats of the forest save her life by transforming her into a kitten. Now Lillian must set out on a perilous adventure that will lead her through untamed lands of fabled creatures—from Old Mother Possum to the fearsome Bear People—to find a way to make things right.

In this whimsical, original folktale written and illustrated throughout in vibrant full color by two celebrated masters of modern fantasy, a young girl’s journey becomes an enchanting coming-of-age story about magic, friendship, and the courage to shape one’s own destiny.
