Under Wildwood + Carson Ellis

Thursday, June 28, 2012

I remembrer being a kid and climbing into bed at night with my brother and sister while my mom read to us from "Mr Poppers Penguins" or "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe". I loved being transported into these imaginary worlds. As a new mom, I'm looking forward to doing the same when Wills is old enough and at the top of my list is the Wildwood Series.

Book 2 of the Wildwood series, Under Wildwood, is scheduled to be released this September and I cannot wait! I love Carson Ellis' illustration style. If you haven't checked out the Wildwood blog it is certainly worth a look. Below is a mixture of Carson's illustrations- some from the new book, and some from her portfolio. Each has captured my imagination.

By the way you can pre-order your copy of Wildwood 2- "Under Wildwood" through Amazon.


  1. I love carson ellis' artwork too. a couple months ago I went to my local library and borrowed every childrens book she illustrated. :P I bought wildwood when it came out but still haven't read it. I need to get on it soon before the new one comes out!

  2. Her work is wonderful! Ir kind of reminds me of the music video Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men. It's here if you haven't seen it before: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghb6eDopW8I

    I always loved when my grandma would read to my sister and me. That's so good of you to do the same with your kids. :)

    By the way, I'm in love with your blog! I've been meaning to visit it since your nice comment on mine. So glad I found you through that, so thank you!

  3. I was just looking for a good children's book for reading by the water. Adult lit can be too un-magical sometimes.
