Book Review

I recently received a hot-off-the-press copy of the new book, Into the Woods.  Let me tell you, this variant of the classic man vs. wild tale did not disappoint!

First I'll mention the binding which was sturdy and elegant.  The simple cover left it up to one's imagination what would be waiting inside.

The story begins with unforeseen obstacles...not one, but two gates bar their entrance.

Daredevilry on a fence and the restraining of dogs.
 There are beautiful moments taking in the splendor of nature,

and scaring it away.
 Brave treks through uncertain waters.
And one who would choose the path less traveled.

Our heroes scale a tree.

There is some language near the end, however I think it is necessary to convey the proper mood.
(s)crap metal...the finding of trash or treasure?
 In the end the boys have taken one step closer to becoming men as shown by the well placed mustache.

The illustrations and narration work together to create a masterful work that will please a variety of audiences as many times as they choose to indulge themselves.  We are up to 12.

Thanks Malachi, Eli, and GiGi!  This made our day!  Silas can't wait to be on the next adventure!
