Praise for Over the Woodward Wall:

"With nods to The Wizard of Oz and Through the Looking Glass, readers of portal fantasy and McGuire’s Wayward Children series will love this unsettling and imaginative adventure."—Buzzfeed on Over the Woodward Wall

"An experimental companion to McGuire’s intricate novel Middlegame, Over the Woodward Wall first came to life as a middle grade story that serves as a pop culture touchstone for the characters in that adult novel. It’s also a story by a master in its own right."—Den of Geek on Over the Woodward Wall

"With lyrical prose and deep stores of emotion, this grown-up fairy tale works on every level." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"[Over the Woodward Wall is] a peculiar but often profound piece of metafiction whose emotional landscape offers more riches than its physical one." —Kirkus Reviews

"Teens will relish the adventure, remarkable creatures, and clever wordplay in Avery and Zib's story."—Booklist

More praise for the author:

"Has an uncanny knack for taking the worst things that lurk in the shadows and weaving them into an absolute delight."—Becky Chambers on Middlegame

"A mini-masterpiece of portal fantasy—a jewel of a book that deserves to be shelved with Lewis Carroll's and C. S. Lewis' classics"—NPR on Every Heart a Doorway

"One of the smartest writers around."—Charlaine Harris on Every Heart a Doorway
