Review of Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll. ★★★★★

Through the Woods is a hauntingly beautiful collection of five short stories told through Emily Carroll’s stunning artwork. I borrowed a copy from a friend, but this is the sort of book that I desperately want to go out and get my own copy of so that I can cherish it and spend hours pouring over the artwork. 241 more words
