Down the Mysterly River by Bill Willingham
From the #1 New York Times bestselling creator of Fables, Bill Willingham’s first novel for children is a spirited, by turns harrowing, laugh-out-loud, and highly original fantasy in the vein of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Complete with illustrations by Fables artist Mark Buckingham, it is a spirited, highly original tale of adventure, suspense, and everlasting friendship.
Max “the Wolf” is a top notch Boy Scout, an expert at orienteering and a master of being prepared. So it is a little odd that he suddenly finds himself, with no recollection of his immediate past, lost in an unfamiliar wood… But unless he can solve the mystery of the strange forested world he’s landed in, Max may find himself and his friends changed beyond recognition, lost in a lost world…
