‘It came from the woods. Most strange things do.’

Come take a walk in the woods and see what awaits you there…

Through the Woods Book Cover

Emily Carroll’s Through the Woods is the perfect Halloween read! Through the Woods is a collection of five graphic tales connected by the phrase, “It came from the woods. (Most strange things do).” These are tales of strange and spooky things that come from or go into the woods — and what these things did to people, or had done to them, along the way.

These tales echo the style of fairy tales or folk tales, but they are so creepy and disturbing! The tales are gory without any humor. Instead of fairy tale whimsy, there is a wicked sense of pace; a foreboding sense of threat lurks throughout the entire book, causing terror to the reader. Do not read this book before you go to bed at night!

Through the Woods is also stunningly beautiful, in a disturbingly macabre sort of way. Everything from the choice of color, the lettering, the grand-sweeping images, and the haunting elements heighten the sense of terror.

Fans of horror, fairy tales, folk tales, or urban legends will delight in this book! Pick it up before Halloween has come and gone!
