I didn’t think I’d get creeped out by this graphic novel I stole from my boyfriend’s house…but I did. I live on a pretty busy street, and the city noise that seeps into my room is usually quite comforting. However, when I was reading Emily Carroll’s Through the Woods, I jumped at every sound outside my window.

The artwork was beautiful—and of course, creepy. But mainly beautiful. My two favorite stories were “Our Neighbor’s House” and “My Friend Janna.” Anyone who loves fairy tales and reminisces about reading Scary Stories to tell in the Dark will love Through the Woods.

4/5 Stars
