Editorial Reviews


Eisner-winning comics creator Willingham (the Fables series) makes his middle-grade debut with an action-packed and often touching novel...that explores the nature of characters and authorship…The end result is a stellar example of a novel working both as an adventure tale and as metafiction. (Starred review, Publishers Weekly on the works of Bill Willingham)

Willingham's Fables comics tapped into the deep fairy-tale structures in my psyche and never let go. Now, Down the Mysterly River finally delivers the same opportunity for younger readers. Lucky them! (Cory Doctorow, New York Times bestselling author of Little Brother on the works of Bill Willingham)
