The Cats of Tanglewood Forest (Excerpt)

Charles de Lint and Charles Vess

The Cats of Tanglewood Forest by Charles de Lint and Charles VessWe'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.

I read it some months ago -- it's a wonderful expansion of A Circle of Cats which was a picture book they did several years back. Collectible eh? I shall have to guard the galley I have!
