Description

Age range 7 to 11 "You can't remember how you became the errand boy of a suspected witch...you can only remember being desperate." In this fable-like graphic novel, a young boy hurries to deliver a package - to an unusual and terrifying woman who lives deep within the sinister Whispering Woods. On the way, he must face his fears in the darkness of the forest. He passes the mystical wolves of the deep caves, slips by murderous spiders, feels the shaking of the giant as it snores, and even encounters a glimmer of hope...but what awaits him at the woman's hut? With poetic language and hauntingly beautiful illustrations, Leo LaFleur and Adam Oehlers spin a darkly fantastical tale, leading the reader on a courage-testing adventure through a forest of great magic and ever deepening peril.
