Today’s Book Spotlight is on Through the Woods by: Emily Carroll.
What would you do if your father disappeared on a hunting trip and left you and your sisters trapped in the snow? Would you leave for your neighbor’s house like he told you, or would you stay in the house to see the strange man who only appears at night and who might not be entirely friendly?
Or what if you had just married a wealthy man and heard an eerie, murderous song at night? No one will tell you what it is, although they all clearly hear it too. Would you go looking for it? Even if you knew you might not make it out alive?
Or what if you’d killed your brother three days ago only to have him turn up good as new as if nothing happened. Would you accept it? Or would you go out into the woods to make sure you’d actually done the deed?
Emily Carroll answers all of these questions and more with her book Through the Woods. Just in time for the month of October, it’s a graphic full of creepy short stories and vibrant illustrations, all of which have an element of the supernatural. If you’re up for a good scare and a quick read, you’ll definitely want to check this book out. To reserve a copy, please fill out a book request form.
