HarperCollins Signs Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis for ‘Wildwood’ Series
“The germ of this series goes back a long way,” Meloy said. “For me, this is the culmination of a long-term collaboration with Carson, matching words and art. I grew up on a steady diet of Lloyd Alexander, Roald Dahl, and Tolkien; this is our humble paean to that grand tradition of epic adventure stories.” Ellis commented, “Wildwood is a project very close to my heart – the collaboration that Colin and I have been dreaming about for years.”
