As Kerry races through the countryside, bearing precious medicine for his sick parents, he comes upon a looming forest, where a mysterious figure lures him in with the promise of a shortcut. Of course, Kerry is soon lost in a dark, labyrinthine wood that has fallen under the control of a malevolent spirit. It's only with the help of an ancient, grouchy Waystoneâa floating, one-eyed boulder dubbed the Old Knight of the Roadâthat Kerry can win freedom, for himself as well as the forest's other captives. Though Watson pulls from classic woodland-fantasy tropes, it's a pleasureâespecially in the age of sprawling seriesâto cozy up with an engaging yet uncomplicated adventure, told well and in full. There's a beauty to the simple characterizations and plot, though they're not without their twists and turns, thanks to clever storytelling. Thick, patterned textures add a density to the forest setting without overcomplicating the panels, and Kerry's long, angular limbs, always in motion, reinforce a general video-game aesthetic that permeates the tale. A boon for Ben Hatke fans. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
