“There are so many brilliant characters in and about Tanglewood Forest! de Lint has filled the forest to bursting, weaving a tapestry of a tale out of folklore and myth, both American and international. Set in a time when wild things still roamed on the edges of farmland and neighbors still knew each other, this is another classic from a fantasy master!”
-- Elizabeth Anker, Alamosa Books, Albuquerque, NM


Description
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.
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 she must set out on a perilous adventure that will lead her through untamed lands of fabled creates--from Old Mother Possum to the fearsome Bear People--to find a way to make things right.
