Praise for Under Wildwood: "Droll and ornate, elegiac and romantic--the sequel to Wildwood (2011) brings readers deeper into and under the pine-scented, magical world tantalizingly close to Portland, Ore...The incomparable Ellis more than rises to the challenge--her sly, wistful, abundant illustrations provide an emotional through line."--Kirkus Reviews
