Summary:Storm and her sisters find themselves once again caught up in an adventure they’d rather have avoided in this sequel to Into the Woods. A beautiful woman arrives at
Review:Gardner’s writing is not unlike that of Roald Dahl, with that touch of wry, zany humor and a slightly tongue-in-cheek approach that leaves readers surprised constantly with what will happen and makes sure that children are always the good guys. Out of the Woods is as stuffed with allusions and fragments of folklore as its predecessor, as well as the strong theme of family ties that is realized even more fully in this second installment. Full of action, adventure, and humor, Out of the Woods is another whirlwind ride that upper elementary children will delight in.
