I love to revisit the childhood classics that have shaped my writing and my life. But I wasn’t prepared for how different Narnia felt when I wandered through the wardrobe holding my daughter’s hand.
My review of Michael Hoard’s The Adventures of Nick and Billy: The Mystery of the Rougarou: a fun, face-paced adventure set in the swamps of South Louisiana. It follows the mis-adventure of two young boys whose love for exploration leads them on a journey through the wilderness where they face not only the dangers of nature, but the darkness of humankind.*
