Horn Book Review

Annie runs away from her miserable existence with her aunt and uncle. She embarks on a journey into the darkness of Howland, an alternate world in which magical creatures roam the woods and danger lurks everywhere. The imaginative story features solid writing, strong characters, and a richly layered plot. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
