Most people aren’t very comfortable in the woods, but the woods of Briery Swamp fit May Bird like a fuzzy mitten. There, she is safe from school and the taunts and teases of kids who don’t understand her. Hidden in the trees, May is a warrior princess, and her cat, Somber Kitty, is her brave guardian.
Then May falls into the lake.
When she crawls out, May finds herself in a world that most certainly does not feel like a fuzzy mitten. In fact, it is a place few living people have ever seen. Here towns glow blue beneath zipping stars and the people –walk through walls. Here the Book of the Dead holds the answers to everything in the universe. And here, if May is discovered, the horrifyingly evil Bo Cleevil will turn her into nothing. May Bird must get out. Fast.
Within these pages, Jodi Lynn Anderson shares with us the beginning of May Bird’s daring journey into the Ever After, a haunting place where true friends–and one terrible foe–await May around every corner.

    " With a writing style that is kind of like Lemony Snickett, and a plot that seems right out of a Tim Burton film, the series was a surprisingly entertaining and enjoyable read. The environment is a little dark, but isn't presented in such a way that I felt it would be too scary for younger readers. A fun Halloween time book. "
