Reprint. Originally published: Oxford: David Fickling, 2006.
Three young sisters must defeat the evil Dr DeWilde before he takes control of the whole land with his wicked wolves and monstrous magic - but at what cost?

Taking inspiration from numerous fairytales and weaving them into a wholly original story, "Into The Woods" is a whirlwind of a novel, full of imaginative happenings, dastardly deeds and thrilling adventure.

Our guides are three sisters: Storm, Aurora and Anything Eden.

Accidentally orphaned and left to fend for themselves in a decaying mansion on the edge of the wilds, they come to the very much unwanted attention of the sinister Dr DeWilde: a scar-faced gentleman with a pied waistcoat and an unhealthy interest in rats.

He's after a tiny little musical pipe that Storm has inherited, and he'll stop at nothing to get it.

Fleeing into the woods, our courageous and eccentric sisters evade kidnap (almost), resist the temptation of sweet-filled orphanages (nearly!), and begin a treacherous journey across raging rivers, over mountains of ice, through deathly silent ghost towns and beyond the lairs of child-eating ogresses.

With ravenously hungry wolves snapping at their heels every step of the way!

Featuring wonderful illustrations by award-winning illustrator Mini Grey, "Into The Woods" is a classic tale with a very modern twist and will delight readers of every generation.
