The book Wild Wood comes from the name and story of the Impassable Wood that could be found in many pages of the book. This book mainly talks about the story and life of the Impassable Wood. The Impassible Wood is a local offside town forest. The name Impassable Wood comes from the mysterious vibe and surroundings of the wood, many humans try to get to that mythical wood, but no one have ever accomplished to get into the middle and also the life of the Impassable Wood.
But one girl called Prue and her friend Curtis have accomplished such a thing. And that is the main story of this book.
The beginning of this book is pictured in a very lighted evening when Prue and Mac are being left alone by their parents, Prue’s parents was heading out for something important that only adults could understand. And, so by that Prue was taking the responsibilities for his brother and herself. Prue was allowed by her parents to go out of the house, so she sat on her bike and put her baby brother in the radio flyer wagon that was attached to the bike. Prue was heading to the library to return some books that she already read and also to borrow some new and interesting books.
After she had done at the library Prue and her baby brother went to a local playground that was near the library. Prue putted Mac at the sandbox, and then she read some books that she had borrowed from the library. When she was so into the book some flock of crows abducted her brother. The crows grabbed Mac at the arm, realizing that Prue ran to her brother quickly and grabbed him by the feet, but it was to hard for her to grab her brother over that many crows. And so her brother was abducted by those terrifying and probably harmful crows. Those crows landed at the Impassable Wood, the last place that anyone would wanted their self to be.
Prue was very upset and yet devastated, she doesn’t know how to tell her parents about the thing that she experienced a couple of minutes ago. And so by that she go home packed herself and ready to go on a search for her brother. She took her bike with her and set of in an adventure that she had never experienced before.
She padle her bike very fast until she came on to the crossing zone between the forest and the people’s residences. At the crossing she saw her classmate called Curtis. “Where are you going?” asked Curtis anxiously “It’s none of your business” Answered Prue strictly. Curtis was very curious why would someone like Prue go off unattended and also heading to the Impassable Wood. Curtis said to Prue, “Well at lease I could be a service and help” She answered “Fine follow me, but don’t make anything silly” after that Prue told the story what she had experienced. A the two of them start a new adventure on their way they found themselves in the middle of the woods as the evening carries on. At night time they found a pack of wolf soldiers who wears a French likely soldier suite. Those wolfs were talking about their leader the Governess of the North Wood, as they talk over Curtis and Prue hide in the bushes, and then a minute or two Curtis was caught and then he was kidnapped by those wolfs and then he was brought to the Governess.
The Governess knows that Curtis was an outsider and by that the Governess of The North Wood gave Curtis some food and a place to sleep in. And then Curtis was offered with an elegant knight costume.
But at the mean time Prue was confused and perplexed, it seems her day could not be any worst. Prue just walk through the wood confused what she had to do. She walked alone when suddenly a van pulled up, the van was driven by a crinkly old man, it was a mail delivery van and the crinkly old man was a mailman. The mailman offered Prue a ride, and Prue accepted that offer. She hopped into the back of the van. And on the way the mailman asked, “What is your name, and where are you from, and where are you doing here?” Prue answered quickly “My name is Prue I’m from Portland, and I’m here searching for my brother and my friend” And then the rest Prue just tell the minor events that she just experienced. And so the mailman suggested that Prue should go to the Foreign Affairs in South Wood. And Prue was driven to the Foreign Affairs office, where she met the Attache (foreign affair staff/ ambassador) and then Prue was helped to find her brother a friend by the help of the local government.
And by that the rest is just many wanderlust adventures that could fill our imaginations with it greatest stories and conflicts that Prue must go in to.
The Most Valuable Quote of This Book
The most valuable quote that I cherished that is written in this book is:
“Were all living creatures and we deserve the same things in live”
The Advantage and Disadvantage of The Book
In my opinion the book’s most advantage thing is the illustrations, the illustration on the book is really appealing and very creative. The illustration shows about the actions in the story and yet, it has a deep and creative meaning to itself as an illustration. The illustration is also full of mixed and appealing color that is very attractive to the human eyes. And not just that we can also learn new word such as Attache (staff ambassador) and many more.
In every book there must be some disadvantages and the disadvantages that comes with this book is heavy weighted and also big in size, so it is not very easy to carry around or putted in to a bag. Not only that the papers of this book is not cut evenly so there are some pages that are even in size.
The Moral Values from Wild Wood
In my conclusion this book teaches us to always be brave and also communicative to other people, so we can find what we need easily. It shows us why socialization is very important in our lives. But not only that this book teaches us to also be humble and kind to other people so we can be a great and loving figures. And the most important thing is just to enjoy whatever live gives you. And it shows us how to be open minded in the changes of life.
My Suggestion for Readers
I suggest this book to many young and old readers, because this book teaches us about many kinds of things about moral lessons and creativity. Not only that this book also introduces us to many new kinds of word that could educate our mind to be more creative at writing and communicating and many barriers and aspects. Not only that it also makes us to be more open minded to many things in life. And clearly the book motivates us to make peace and love to everyone without paying attention to their background, social status, and many more. And that is why I very qualified and suggested this book to many kinds of readers. (Bimo)
