Gr 4-7-Into the Woods mixes fantasy and a touch of suspense. Ten-year-old Rufus is off to stay with his grandma for a few days. Since her house backs up to a massive forest, he decides to explore and comes across an unfriendly neighbor, Penny, and a magical wooden necklace that allows him to morph into a Sasquatch. A pack of wolves, fearing a shift in the woodland balance of power, is determined to get the necklace back, and use Penny as bait. But Rufus uses his Sasquatch power to save the day-and his necklace-setting the stage for more adventures to come. The plot is easy to follow, but also fairly predictable and doesn't offer much in the way of surprises. The rich, expressive full-color artwork shines, adding humor and ably carrying the story. The book might not leave a lasting impression on every reader, but it will have its fans.-Travis Jonker, Wayland Union Schools, MI (c) Copyright 2012.
